"Hate Walls and Ballparks" is an episode of Ferris State Live produced by the fall 2009 TVPR 499 class at Ferris State University. Produced on September 28th and aired on October 1st of 2009, it is the third show of the 2009-2010 season.
The Wall of HateEdit
Bryan Lochan, an RA in Brophy/McNerney Halls, discussed a diversity program on campus that involved the building and subsequent tearing down of a "wall of hate," where students would get to write on the blocks various slurs they've been hurt with, so that eventually, the wall could be torn down. The wall was an open event to the entire community, not just to Ferris students.
Battle at the BallparkEdit
Brandi came on to talk about the 5th/3rd Bank-sponsored Battle at the Ballpark, which was scheduled for October 3rd. Scott and Leah wondered how that was coordinated, and Brandi assured them that 5th/3rd was actually very cooperative. Leah ensured former Ferris students that the event was ideal for Grand Rapids residents. Brandi eventually gave a plug for the Alumni Office home page, saying it was the ideal place to go to check for various sponsored alumni-relevant events.
Ticket prices for Battle at the Ballpark were $5 for students and $10 for the general public.
Focus on the sports end of things switched to Women's Tennis; and Sandy commented on them having good seating. Scott also mentioned that volleyball was doing well, to which Sandy replied that he believed volleyball would be "a roller coaster" for Ferris.
