Completely regret ever attending this University.Quite BrightAccounting
Completely regret ever attending this University. The classes you take are a joke and this school just wants your money. The campus is extremely average. The town of Bowling Green is literally the anus of Ohio. The police in this city are AWFUL and actively pursue students to write them tickets and screw them over. The police in this town are not there to make sure you are safe, they are there to raise the city revenue through drinking tickets and other types of tickets. Seriously, the police here are absolutely awful and will pull you over for no reason. I transferred after my first year at this University and I do not regret it whatsoever. The dorms here are absolutely pitiful and tiny. This school is a complete joke. The town of Bowling Green is awful and literally like 3 square miles with 500 cops constantly patrolling everywhere trying to screw you over. Do NOT make the mistake of giving this crap university any of your money or moving to this sad excuse of a city.

I chose BGSU because it wasn't too farQuite BrightCommunications
I chose BGSU because it wasn't too far or too close to my hometown and the campus was nice. That's pretty much the only good thing about BGSU, though.

The student parking lot is placed in the very back of campus and it takes at least 20 minutes to walk to the lot from any given dorm building.

The dorms are not ideal living conditions. Most of them are old, you're crammed in there, and not well-kept.

Perhaps the worst thing about BGSU is that there is a group called "Parking Services". If your parking meter expires by one minute, you'll get a $20 ticket. If you park close to your dorm in order to pack-up your car, you'll get a hefty fine too. They take mercy and it's another way for BGSU to get your money.

A lot of the money that you pay towards tuition goes towards useless things. For example they are rebuilding the frat houses, which were perfectly fine before they tore them down. Bowling Green State University is not a University, it is a business.
