January 1st launched the first day of FerrisGetOutside Sp19!  We are excited to encourage even more people to engage in the great outdoors, curious of what you all are up to, and looking forward to getting you more outdoor gear!

If you participated in FerrisGetOutside F18, we’ve made some changes which I’ll share in a minute.  If you have never participated … FerrisGetOutside is an engagement campaign for the Ferris community to encourage outdoor engagement through collecting and sharing visual stories (… photos).  Participants (can) win usable gear.  Anyone 18 years old+ can participate; however most winnings will be directed at students this Spring.  The report from FGO Fall 2018 can be found HERE! 

How does FerrisGetOutside Sp19 work??

Instead of a multi-week campaign, FGO Sp19 is a 4-month campaign spanning Jan 1- April 30, 2019!
