EXPLORE THIS COLLEGE PORTRAIT

Bowling Green State University is a premier learning community, committed to student success, lifelong personal and career growth and engaged learning.  BGSU provides exceptional educational opportunities inside and outside the classroom that prepare students for lifelong intellectual growth, career development, lives of engaged citizenship and leadership in a global society.  Through academic, research, public and private partnerships, BGSU students enrich their classroom learning with real-world experiences such as service learning, coops, practicums and internships, education abroad, fieldwork, undergraduate research, and community involvement.  BGSU emphasizes discovery, creativity, real-world experiences, achievement, collaboration and a culture of respect in a welcoming, supportive community.   

Living in the Falcons Community

A primarily residential campus, BGSU provides a supportive and welcoming environment for students as they personalize, reinforce, and extend learning by applying in their own lives what they have learned in the classroom -- moving beyond awareness and understanding to application, performance, synthesis, and integration. BGSU students use the rich educational opportunities found inside and outside the classroom to broaden their knowledge and develop real-world skills. Through high impact activities that foster a positive living and learning community focused on success, students are supported and challenged academically, emotionally, socially, spiritually, physically, and otherwise in building knowledge, values and identity. Through a dynamic partnership between Academic Affairs and Student Affairs, students are supported in their personal growth in such areas as career preparation, leadership development, effective global citizenship, and successful engagement with others through nationally recognized programs.
