Students Asked To Join The "Dawg Pound"

Big Rapids, Mich. – In an effort to help the Ferris State University men’s and women’s basketball teams establish a powerful homecourt advantage, Bulldog students are currently being encouraged to join the “Dawg Pound” student section.

Membership to the "Dawg Pound" is free and students joining will receive a free tshirt and reserved seating underneath the basket opposite the FSU pep band for all home games in 2009-10. They will also be entitled to receive a free hot dog and pop at all home games when present at least from halftime of the women’s game to halftime of the men’s contest. 

Additionally, students who are part of the “Dawg Pound” can receive an entry to a special end of the year drawing by attending 11 of the 13 home doubleheaders at Wink Arena this season. They will also earn team banquet tickets by attending 12 of 13 home games and a special free mystery prize by making it to all 13 home outings.

The first home doubleheader of the season is Monday (Nov. 30) night as the Bulldogs host archrival Grand Valley State in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) opener at Wink Arena. The “Big Monday” doubleheader begins with the women’s contest at 6 p.m. (ET) and the men’s game tips off at 8 p.m. (EST).

FSU students are admitted free to all home basketball games by showing their student identification cards.

Those interested in joining the “Dawg Pound” should contact FSU student organizer Eric Cole and send their name and tshirt size via email to:
