4 College Junior

Greek Life: There are some internal rivalries between fraternities and/or sororities, but overall, Greek Life really makes an impact on many different aspects of both campus, and across the nation. Always supporting each other's philanthropies

3 College Junior

Athletics: The Sic-Sic and the falcon mascots are always pushing spirit in every direction. Games can be fun, but I don't really attend.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful when it's nice outside; it looks like a college in the movies. The town itself is a lot of fun and there are plenty of opportunities for students to meet other students. I like this school, but not love; it's too flat, so the wind and the winters are pretty brutal. I've never had a professor in my 4 years that has blown me away with passion or enthusiasm to teach, which is sad.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have only heard of one incident of crime on campus, but that was on the other side of campus from where I live, and the dorms have pretty good security too. I only heard about it from a text alert I got from the college, which is pretty nice that they have that service.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are all pretty great. Some of them were really fun while others are pretty dry, but all the teachers I have had did their pest to make their respective courses worth while, and for the most part were successful in that.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I myself wasn't looking for employment last semester, but I know some people who did have jobs and they seemed to have an OK time with it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms vary in size depending on the hall you live in. I live in a hall with relatively small dorms, but I think that it's enough space. The learning community here is really supportive too.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I actually don't know much about it, but I know someone in a fraternity and they seem like they are having a good time there.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If this makes any sense, I'd have to say that BGSU has a lot of unique cultures in it. What I mean by that is there are a lot of learning communities and extra curricular events. You can pretty much tailor your social experience to your interests.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I haven't heard of anything happening on campus to anyone I'm connected to at school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: School here is great. I have found most of my classes to be very interesting, and impactful. I have definitely used knowledge I've learned to my advantage. Thanks to coming to BG, I love learning. I've become more passionate about learning, I've formed relationships with my instructors, I have discovered more of who I am at Bowling Green State University.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I desire eight now to continue higher education. I very interested in social cultural anthropology and linguistics. Also photojournalism.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great, it's good being around people and gaining the experience of sharing a small space. However, roommates are hit and miss and so are the rest of your hall mates. But you can find friends and enjoy living on campus if you try hard enough

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know how difficult it is to join but it's easy to get into their parties (if you're a female that is)

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Bowling green has been very good to me. I've worked hard, and loved my classes. I like the faculty too. However, it does not offer any programs that fit the direction of where I want my higher education to go.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus crime: minimal

Personal safety: emergency "blue" lamps are placed throughout campus and the police arrive within moments of pushing the button

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am grateful to experience the difference between a professor that loves their job and want to help students grow and further gain knowledge and others that lack in inspiring students to achieve greater than a C. Although some courses maybe an easy A for the Gen-ed classes the majority of the time they are boring (ex. Weather and Climate). Before coming into college I was told big lecture halls are hard to learn in, however, some professors make the experience personable and you don't feel like a number (ex. Microeconomics with Andrea Schiender..she is a wonderful professor).

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't utilized the career center, however, the career accelerator in the Business building is very helpful in guiding you towards creating the best resume and coverletters. They also help you in career paths which is helpful to those unsure what they can with their major or are looking for another option in a career path.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I never hear of any issues on campus, occasionally in the town though but never too serious.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Never once regretted my decision to attend here.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: BGSU students typically get jobs after graduation.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The new dorms are extremely nice but the older ones are pitiful.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Best dorms socially/more affordable: Harshman and Kriescher. Everyone keeps the doors open and are very friendly.

Best dorms/more costly: Falcon Heights, Founders, Offenhauer. Super hard to get into.

Best dorm for convenience: McDonald. It's almost in the heart of campus. The majority of classes for freshmens are located in that area.

The housing process is first come first served so the option of choice is not guaranteed and you're left with either your second or even last option of housing.
