Crowds prompt Ferdinand’s to open this Saturday

Ferdinand's-80PULLMAN, Wash. — There’s good news for anyone craving Ferdinand’s ice cream this weekend. The Washington State University creamery’s ice cream shop will be open 1-4 p.m. Saturday, April 26.

Who can we thank for this rare Saturday opening? The more than 12,000 visitors expected on campus this weekend to participate in WSU Admissions’ “Preview for Juniors” and the Student Entertainment Board’s “Springfest 2014.”

Ferdinand's-600“We had a lot of families asking us if Ferdinand’s would be open,” said Jocelyn De Jong, director of recruitment for WSU Enrollment and Recruitment. “So we thought we would investigate the option.”

Ferdinand’s is typically only open on weekends of home football games, Mom’s Weekend and for graduation.

“The School of Food Science saw this as an opportunity to reach more students and let them know about Ferdinand’s and the school,” said Russ Salvadalena, creamery manager.

Ferdinand’s is located at 2035 NE Ferdinand’s Lane in the Food Quality Building, two blocks east of the new Biotech/Life Sciences Building. It is south of the Indoor Practice Facility.
