| Coming from across the country to attend BGSU, I don't regret it for a second. I chose bg because I knew that this school would provide me with the whole college experience I had been looking for, unlike the small private schools out where I'm from. The faculty has provided me with amazing help in planning out my future thus far and the people I have met are driven and good students, but also know how to have a good time. Yes, Ohio is freezing in the winter. and yes, there is lots of farm land. However, if you join on campus organizations I doubt you will sit in your room and be bored unlike schools where everyone goes home on the weekend. BG is in the works of updating a lot of their dorms so within the next 5 or so years I can see the campus aesthetics improving a lot too. Obviously, college is what you make of it so if you're not willing to put yourself out there and try new things then no you're not going to like BG but probably not any other college either. The difference in BG is its big enough to not get bored but small enough to not feel like you're nobody. |

| BGSU is what you make it. If you are looking for a good education. This is the place to be. If you are looking for your typical "Moive" college with all the wild partying and great academics. This might be the place for you. |
One thing about this school is that if you are anything other than caucasian american, you will be considerd a minority. It is up to you to meet friends and fit in. They will not just come along, you have to more than likely be involved. THE WEATHER SUCKS. Dorms are cool dependoing on where you live. There are newer dorms as of Fall 2011 and the older ones are really crappy small dorms, but expensive as well. Campus food is all fatty foods and will make you what we call "The Freshman 15".
Reasons why I would choose another school is because of boredem and not being involved and feeling like the minority. Fast to get tired of the same ole clubbing scene and the cost of books is amazingly HIGH. They start to make cutom BGSU books so that youb cant purchase them anywhere else, so you have to buy there expensive books.
I hate the weather! I'm trasnferring for that reason as well. Parking sucks and they ticket you like crazy.
*NOTE* BGSU IS ALL ABOUT MONEY! They will reel you in and take your money in any way possible. Advising it good. Try talking with Ian Lee in Student Support Services. Financial Aid is really friendly and works with you!Overall, it's okay for your typical white student. Small amouns of racism from time to time, but for the sake of money, BGSU tries to plan events to ACT like they care. Good lUCK!

| I moved to Tampa, FL after graduation and make a lot more than I ever imagined right out of college. The faculty were great, all of my business classes were small and the quality of the coursework was top notch. There are a lot more girls than guys on campus and the downtown bar scene is AWESOME. Lived on campus for three semesters, then in a house off campus, then at the Enclave II (Falcons Pointe now I think), then at MeccaBG on Fairview (3bdrm townhouse). Had a great time living in Mac West and even more fun off campus. Spent a lot of time exploring the area on my motorcycle, lots of nice country roads and cool little towns around. BG is such a great little college town and I never got an STD there :)If it wasn't for my current income I would be going back there for my MBA! |
