2 College Junior

Overall Experience: BGSU might work for some people, but the school is very sub-par. Academics are average, campus is ugly, the people are not friendly, food is good though. Overall if your if you want a plain, cheap, college experience BGSU is for you. There are certainly better schools in Ohio, aesthetically and academically such as Miami or OSU. I knew within 5 minuets of being at the BGSU campus that this school is nothing special.

Campus Housing: The dorm rooms are very small. Last year at the Harshman the fire alarms kept going off all the time, What a pain. I hope we don't go thru that again at the Kreischer. The cost of the small rooms I believe is high. Sharing a bathroom and a small box for 2600.00. I wish there was a better way to do the housing choice. I really wanted a bathroom in my room but nothing was available. Should have a limit of rooms per day for choosing.

Athletics: I have not gone to any sporting events my freshman yr. But Freddie and Freda are super mascots. They keep everyone pumped. maybe this year I will make it to a hockey or football game

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is very well. Crimes are at a minimum and I feel that majority of our students are comfortable and feel as if they are in a safe environment.

Overall Experience: Networking is huge when it comes to finding a job. Sometimes it is just better to know people that are in a position to help you. Getting field experience is also very important.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Campus housing is what you make it. Some dorms are nicer than others, but they do all promote community building and helps you to get to know others. A lot of the dorms have you in a smaller living area.

Greek Life: Greek Life holds a very positive role at our school. Majority of our Greeks are involved in organizations outside of their Greek Organizations, so we collaborate and are inclusive with numerous organizations on and outside of campus. We promote Greek Unity here at BGSU and are very involved in the community. Our campus just finished building the new Greek housing right on campus so they will be brand new for this upcoming semester.

Athletics: When we think about athletics at BGSU, we must break it down team-by-team. The most popular sports team on our campus is our Football team. They have won 3 MAC Championships since I have attended the university. They get a lot of support because of their winning tradition. The next biggest is both Men's and Women's Basketball. As a former basketball player for the university, we never had the largest crowd of fan support because the basketball team has not had the most spectacular records as of lately. The Women's basketball team, on the other hand, has had winning records so they do have a greater fan base than the men's team. The only other sports team that is profitable and popular at our school is the Men's Hockey Team.

Overall Experience: My overall college experience has been great so far. I have found myself involved with the different organizations around campus, such as the President's Leadership Academy (PLA), Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., WFAL (campus radio station), Aid For Change, Sport Managemnt Alliance (SMA), and other various organizations. I have been utilizing my resources to put me in the best opportunity to succeed. My college has been here to support and help me.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties arent too large, outside the doors the hosts will control the amount of people who enter the party. these parties are a great way of getting to know people as well!

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are normally parties thursday-friday. Lottos different frats take turns in hosting parties not the weekends. The nightlife is probably the best around the areas. There are both 18 and 21 and over bars to get into and there are a large variety of both. Transportation is available throughout the night until 2:30 in the morning via bus.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The teachers are very welcoming and are available to help you when you need assistance. Classes are also fairly easy, as long as you attend class and pay attention then you should okay !

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many diverse people within our campus but it is so amazing how accepting everyone is of one another.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: If people were to do drugs on campus, they would more than likely take it to a nonvisibile location. Although, many try to smoke weed within the dorms

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: coming all the way from out of state this is the best college i could have chosen.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It all depends on the effort you put forth because that is what you'll receive

4 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: In my experience I feel generally safe in my surroundings on campus

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing options are pretty average nothing extravagant

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Absolutely love and glad I joined Greek life my freshman year

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are really known for hockey everything else we are pretty average at

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy the school and all that it has to offer but the cost is a bitch much for the working class family

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is awesome. Kreischer is generally seen as the worse dorm, but I live there and it really isn't all that bad. The cost is a bit of a thing, but junior and senior year you can just live off campus. The process is extremely easy and I had no issues finding housing on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We were recently MAC champions which was pretty cool. I haven't had the opportunity to go to many games, but where there is a game the entire campus erupts in school spirit. The sport facilities are very well maintained and the athletes usually preform extremely well. The school doesn't throw sports in your face, it just feels like a natural part of campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek students are generally ok, they're fairly nice to non-greeks and don't really do anything to disrupt the mood on campus. There are Greek housing units that have recently been built and they do look really nice. Usually they stick with eachother.
