Pathify Partners With Ferris State Streamlining Their Student Experience

Ferris State doubles down on their commitment to personalized education by implementing a true student experience hub.

DENVER, April 13, 2023 – Pathify — the only centralized user experience hub for higher ed — proudly welcomes Ferris State University to the growing community of global customers obsessed with improving the student technology experience.

Dedicated to offering resources in support of student success and meeting the needs of the student body, Ferris State amplifies its support with a unifying platform tailored to current students, faculty and alumni needs. 

“I don’t know if there is anything we won’t be using Pathify for,” said Eric Hazen, Director of Digital Marketing at Ferris State University. “This will be a student’s way of connecting and interfacing with the University from the time they become a Bulldog until the time they become an alumnus and hopefully through that lifelong learner journey.”

Hazen continued to say, “We’re excited to replace our legacy portal with Pathify, allowing us to meet modern learners’ expectations — something we can’t do with our current technology.” In addition, Hazen stated, “Pathify will also have an enormous positive impact on the great work of our faculty and staff members. Our new portal will help them discover and use the tools they need to succeed in their roles.”

“We see Pathify as how all of our staff, faculty and students will start and end their day,” says Charlie Weaver, Chief Information Officer at Ferris State University. “Pathify is where everyone will go to get things done.”

Pathify fills the massive user experience void at the center of the higher education digital ecosystem, delivering a personalized user experience unifying all technology, content, communications and people. Offering highly personalized experiences for users at every point in their journey, the Engagement Hub encourages system-agnostic integrations, collaborative social groups, personalized tasks and multi-channel communication with full web/mobile parity.

“The values Ferris State embodies when it comes to a personalized student experience represent perfect alignment with what we do every day at Pathify,” said Matt Hammond, Chief Revenue Officer at Pathify. “We’re absolutely thrilled to support this work for many years to come.”

Ferris State joins the rapidly expanding Pathify customer community in Michigan, along other customers such as Cornerstone University, Aquinas College and Western Michigan University Cooley School of Law.
