4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is always something to do you just have to know the right people. There are those times where it is a boring nightlife, it happens. A lot of parties I've attented were fraternitiy/house parties. When the parties were not close by like special occassion parties (halloween, icebreakers, etc.) party buses were provided.

Scholarships: Finacial aid is my worst enemy. I dread the day I have to do my finacial aid. At times, the bursar office said they didn't recieve certain documents that I had proof I did and I had to redue them, I met with the finacialmaid peoplemface-to-face to calulate my aid and they calculated wrong in which we didn't find out until later ( 3 days before deadline). This caused me to owe $3,000+ in which could have been paid off but the calculations were wrong and I am still dealing with finacial aid because there was a miscommunication on what the fee was for. Now I am scrambling up money to pay this fee I can enroll in classes. It's the worst and I wish they would help me out and tell me what I can do.

Off-Campus Housing: There are places located all around for off capmus housing. Some of places I have seen they looked nice inside and makes me feel secured enough to where I would rather live off campus than on. Transportation is convenient and the cost is affordable especially the places that are already furnished. Don't live off campus so I would not know how the landlords are but when I visited some friends who do they don't bother you. They let you live your life. Avaliablity for just a one bedroom apartment is hard to come across because they go fast.

Health & Safety: Bowling Green is colleg bound campus. There is no major threat and is completely safe. I feel comfortable of walking anywhere by myself. I just don't like walking alone at night at times because I just don't like walkimg in the dark. Not saying BGSU isn't safe at night, I just had other experiences before I attended BGSU that made me uncomfortable to walk at night by myself.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It is pretty average. The RA's are not too strict or too lenient and the law enforcements are the same. They just do their jobs and as long as you follow the rules put in place there won't be a problem. I am basing this statement off of my experience.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Yes, I plan on having an internship because going to college doesn't just mean recieving a degree but it means building friendships and making connections. With these connections and friendships being built it opens opportunities in order for you to become known and get these internships that allows you to learn and recieve the experience that is needed for your area of study. If you make an impression on the company you have an internship with then this can possibly be your job after you graduate or become a paid internship.

3 College Freshman

Majors: It is competitive, which is expected. The graduate students get future graduate students involved in activities that would be beneficial for us in the long run. Since the nursing program is so competitive those who are in charge of the program have study sessions or study tables in order to help you stay on track with your grades. This becomes very helpful and less stressful to know there are other sources you able to turn to to get help other than the learning commons.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: It's okay. I don't think there is a lot of diversity from what I've seen. I didn't start seeing asian students until later on in the semester and even that was few. It is hard finding minority students on campus.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Catching the shuttle would be your source of transportation and its simple to catch the shuttle. If you have a smartphone then there is an app called transloc that is avaliable. This helps track where the shuttles are located and gives you the time it will take to be at the location where your going to catch it. The shuttle also goes downtown and there are party buses avaliable at times. You can also get a pamphlet explaind the times the shuttles start/stop running and what locations they go to. If you decide to live off camous there are shuttle buses that take you on campus. There are other source of transportation for example, some type of car service but those are the types od transportation you are going to have to pay for.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: If your a health craved type of person or a vegan it may be challenging to find healthy places to eat or vegan choices. The off-campus dining consists of fast food resturants but if you go down town which is walking distance, you'll find more resturants that will satisfy your unique diet. the cost is affordable and BGSU gives their students a discount booklet that can be used. Every restaurant is in walking distance and right across from the campus.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather has its up and downs. It is really windy and when it rains it is best to wear a raincoat or get an unbrella that curves over you because the wind will blow your unbrella everywhere. You'll get soaking wet and your unbrella will be destroyed. Overall the weather is like weather in Ohio, bipolar, so be prepared for anything. When the weather is spring like or summer like it is beautiful and the wind just makes it that much more amazing.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is calm and the people are inviting. There is always something going on on campus and dining off campus is great. There are all kinds of resturants located right next to the campus and the campus itself is easy to find classes. The camous is not too big or too small. The shooping is a challenege because the mall is in Toledo (neighboring school) so your going to have to find your own transportation. There are campus updates that are sent to your email explaining of all the events that are coming up. Overall Bowling Green State University is a calm, college bound, fun, and a good place to futher your education.

Academics: I love my major. It wouldn't be that great if they didn't add the specialization or the new crime lab that is being constructed.

Greek Life: Greek life is everywhere, a little overbearing, but not too bad. The Greek housing is getting rebuilt. Non-Greeks get somewhat annoyed with Greeks, but not too bad, once again.

Health & Safety: There is really no huge crime, there isn't a lot of minor crime either.

2 College Freshman

Computers: There are a lot of labs, the wifi isn't very reliable though.
