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.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Bowling Green State University is a top school for individuals looking to major in education. With that being my major my freshman year, I had a really good academic experience and learned a lot from my classes and professors. Professors for all majors area always willing to help if you are struggling in their class. There is also a tutoring program in the library for all different subjects including a writing center which is very helpful with papers.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: This past year, I was an Early Childhood Education major. Bowling Green is a teaching school so my experience in this program was amazing. I was in a classroom in a Toledo school my first semester, this provided me with real life experience and really gave me a feel for the career I was looking at. Although I am in the process of changing my major, I really appreciate my time and experiences in the IEC program.

4 College Freshman

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.
