College Senior

Campus Housing: I have not gotten to stay on campus for a semester yet but through my tours and short stays it seems wonderful, and the learning communities seem like an awesome value

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I have not had any issues with strictness

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I believe there is a lot of variety on campus between the guys and girls. You will see many different personalities, dress types, and interests if you sit at the Union and "people watch". BGSU does a good job at allowing people to express themselves, no matter what that means. Many, not all, but many people are accepting of the differences.

Greek Life: Greek Life is great for those involved. At times it gives the campus a "click" type of feel, but nonetheless allows people to feel included and important. I am personally not a greek but know many who participate.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of the off campus housing units are identical to each other. They provide different amenities, but basically offer the same things and prices for the most part. I would say off-campus housing is just average here at BG.

Athletics: I believe BGSU includes their athletes and their games throughout campus. It's exciting to walk out of your dorm or through campus and see the splash of orange attire and signs with the times and dates of the games. It is a very exciting part of being a falcon!

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is okay, but it could be a lot better. The chapters raise a lot of money and are definitely the leaders on campus. However, administration and faculty do not acknowledge or support the advancement of Greek Life.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: The financial aid office is okay to deal with and I didn't need much financial aid. Tuition just keeps rising though

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: There are very few options and two of the dining halls have gross buffet style. Meal plans are also super expensive

Off-Campus Dining: Dining off campus is pretty average for a small town. Handful of options downtown and close to campus. some are a little pricey

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: If you don't like to drink or go to the bars you're out of luck

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: You can underage drink and do drugs in dorms fairly easily if you're not completely stupid. PARKING SERVICES SUCKS THOUGH

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Some super hot people, some average people, some very creepy ugly people

3 College Senior

Academics: Pretty average for a state school. Some great teachers, some terrible teachers. The only big complaint is that it has become open enrollment and anyone gets admission.

3 College Senior

Academics: I'm an English major and the faculty is great, but the program is not taken seriously unless you're becoming a teacher.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: Unless you live in Centennial or Falcon Heights the dorms are awful. Greek housing provided a better community environment, but BGSU refused to fix them as they deteriorated. Now they are tearing down the Greek houses while planning to build a new Greek community. Those will be fantastic, IF they ever get built

Health & Safety: Campus police patrol campus. Generally BG is pretty safe. There is an occasional sexual assault, robbery, or assault.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: As for the basics BG is okay. You'll get a decent education. However, if you want to have an exceptional college experience you MUST get involved. Bowling Green can be an extremely boring town. Other than campus and the amazing bar scene there isn't much to do.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The AYCE facilities are hardly ever any good. There are some meals they make that I enjoy, and they don't have them often. A lot of the stuff doesn't even look appetizing. They could be open later, especially on the weekends. The union food isn't bad, since it's like a food court. Things do get a little old though. The times I had eaten at the sundial I was not impressed. Both times I got spaghetti, it wasn't that good, and the bread stick was hard as a rock.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Although I am changing my major, I really enjoyed the program I was in this past year. The professors and advisers were always very helpful. The education program is very extensive, the work load can get pretty heavy but it was still a good program and I learned a lot about it and myself.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had an internship. I will need one with my new major and I hoping to find one that I really like and can turn into a career.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: This year I was very privileged with my housing. I was in the newest freshman dorm having air conditioning, my own bathroom, and a very spacious room. The housing process for that was easy and reasonable. The process for my housing next year however, was not a very good experience. My roommate and I had a lot of trouble with it and ended up in one of the worst dorms on campus.

Guys & Girls: As far as looks go, Bowling Green has a fairly attractive student body. Going into personality, it's great. Every person i meet is nice and fun to be around. I would say the easiest way to make friends would be in your dorm. My roommate and I quickly became very close friends with the people on our floor. This year I did not join any organizations as I was just trying to get used to the college life, but many people I new that joined different organizations around campus gained a lot of friends.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Like I said before, Bowling Green is a large party school. It doesn't matter what weekend, it doesn't matter how cold it is, you can always find a party to attend and there will always be people downtown at the bars. There are a number of weekends where everyone goes out; opening weekend, homecoming, Halloween, St. Pattys day, etc. Mostly, I would walk to parties/bars since it's not that far. Occasionally I would take the bus, or call a cab.

Drug Safety: Being a college town, there isn't much to do in Bowling Green besides go out to parties and the bars. In my opinion, Bowling Green is a pretty big party school, there are a number of different occasions where most of the student body goes out to drink. While a lot of students participate in the partying, if you don't, there are plenty of other things to do on campus and you can easily find your group of friends. If you do get in trouble while drinking, there are policies that the school enforces. I am not that educated on them being that I haven't gotten into that situation, but I do know some people who have gotten in trouble and had to follow through with school policies.
