Big Rapids is most fortunate to blend the arts, recreation and culture of larger communities with the family environment of a mid sized town. This creates an advantageous City in which to live and raise a family.

Many of the local amenities come from Ferris State University, a college of over 13,000 students, which is located along the southern edge of town. Students, professors and educators bring a dimension to the community which encourages inclusion of newcomers and new ideas.

The University, known throughout the nation as a training ground for both academic and trade pursuits, drives much of the economic success which thrives here.
