Bulldog Bonanza returns for another round, giv­ing stu­dents the chance to get acquainted with the cam­pus, com­mu­nity, and wide vari­ety of free­bies to be given away.

Bulldog Bonanza is a yearly event, which takes place in Wink Arena. Many local busi­nesses, stu­dent orga­ni­za­tions, com­mu­nity groups and select cam­pus depart­ments will pack into the build­ing, each with their own table, to show­case what they have to offer Ferris students.

Everything, includ­ing admis­sion to the event, is free. Many of the orga­ni­za­tions in atten­dance will have hand­outs for stu­dents, which range any­where from prod­uct sam­ples to door prizes. There will also be sign-ups and infor­ma­tion about many dif­fer­ent stu­dent organizations.

“I think it’s a very impor­tant event,” pre-veterinary sopho­more Katie DeCare said. “It presents a really good oppor­tu­nity for stu­dents. All you have to do is go to one build­ing and look for some­thing you might enjoy.”

Required to attend Bulldog Bonanza for her FSU Seminar class, DeCare said she talked to a few of the groups present at last year’s event. Most sem­i­nar classes require stu­dents attend Bulldog Bonanza and fill out a bingo card to ensure stu­dents speak to dif­fer­ent busi­nesses or orga­ni­za­tions. Bingo cards will be dis­trib­uted by the booth man­aged by the Chamber of Commerce.

Included as part of this year’s Leadership Week, Bulldog Bonanza is coop­er­a­tively spon­sored by the Center for Leadership, Activities and Career Services and the Mecosta County Chamber of Commerce with BASIS PCS as the main ven­dor sponsor.

Bulldog Bonanza will be held in Wink Arena in the Ewigleben Sports Complex on Sept. 18 from 4 to 7 p.m. Anyone with ques­tions con­cern­ing Bulldog Bonanza should con­tact stu­dent activ­i­ties spe­cial­ist Teresa Fogel at ext. 5936.
