I am a gradAverage
I am a grad student, I just want to say one thing.
BGSU got horrible dining service. The union got expensive (horrible) food; and there are not many good places to go get lunch.

Maybe it is because I am new to this place, but can someone tell me if BG has another food court??????

BGSU is what you make it.Quite BrightPsychology
BGSU is what you make it. And its so diverse and easy to craft into your own. There are so many different types of people and opportunities. I would say this is like your standard college; like the ones potrayed in the movies.Very traditional and proud of their colors.The student body is very enthusiastic and takes control of their education. On any given week, you can see a group of passionate students boycotting for a cause. The teachers will not reach out to you, but if you let them know that you care, they will put in a lot of time and energy to make sure you suceed. There are so many fun, cool and down to earth professors. The college is also the perfect size. No, their is not a lot of things to do in BG during the day, but you and your friends find creative ways to have a good time. Plus Toledo, which is a main city, is only 25 mins away. BG's night life is great and attracts students from many different colleges. Down town has a nice strip with a bunch of great clubs and bars. And if your 21, everywhere is free!! but if you arent a partier, you can easily just stay out of that scene and find other ways to have fun.

If you are looking for a place where you can work and play hard, this is a good choice. And there is sooooo many orgsnizations to get involved in. Also, I lived on campus for three years. I recommend it, because the dorms is where I met most of my friends. Also, the study abraod program is phenomenal, if thats something you were interested in. The school is great if you take advantage of all the opportunities and be responsible with your partying (if u are easily influenced or irresponsible you can find yourself partying, drinking excessively and on academic probation).

If I could rewind time, I wouldnt have chosen any other place. And I am sure all of my friends feel the same way. Campus just feels like home. I am a very school focused student with a 3.9 GPA and I feel its still a good challenge for me. Not too easy but not rediculesly hard. But I will say that throughout my undergrad years, our tuition kept getting raised to pay for all the construction going on. That sucked...But now that the construction is over, campus looks great and makes the college even more valuable. If your looking for friendly people, cool ass profs, great night life and many opportunites, this is the school for you. Just come in with an open mind and a determination to be successful. Oh yea, and :)

BGSU was one of the greatest experiences of
BGSU was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The academic atmosphere is great; several researchers and guest speakers come to the campus from all over the world for conferences and presentations on a regular basis. The city of Bowling Green is a college town that is a lot of fun and it has a lot of unique spots to just chill and read or get something to eat. Many of my friends are successful in their respective fields working all over the world; though there are a few that partied too much and are struggling(just a few). I could have attended just about any other school in the country and I am glad that I chose Bowling Green State University.
