Big Rapids, Mich. - Ferris State University will honor the academic success of its various student-athletes in a special halftime ceremony this Thursday (Dec. 2) evening in conjunction with the Bulldogs' basketball doubleheader at FSU's Jim Wink Arena.

The Bulldogs' Student-Athlete Academic Achievement Night presentation will take place at halftime of the FSU women's basketball game against Tiffin, which is slated for an 8 p.m. (ET) start.

The nationally-ranked Ferris men's basketball team opens the evening doubleheader with its first Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) contest versus the Dragons at 6 p.m. (ET) as part of the league's new scheduling format with the men playing first in conference games this year.

The halftime presentation will include recognition of student-athletes from FSU's 15 varsity programs earning GLIAC All-Academic honors for the spring 2010 season along with Ferris recipients of the Division II Athletic Directors Association (ADA) Academic Achievement Awards for the 2009-10 athletics campaign.

In addition to fellow students and fans, FSU faculty members are also invited to attend and help recognize these student-athletes for their academic efforts.

Tickets for Thursday's doubleheader will be sold at the door starting one hour prior to game time. FSU students are admitted free with ID. For more information on home ticket sales, please contact the FSU Athletics Ticket Office at (231) 591-2888.
