5 College Sophomore

Academics: I think BG has the best early childhood education program in the country and I'm blessed to call it my school!

4 College Freshman

Academics: I think the academics at BG are great. Professors are willing to talk to any student that needs help. The curriculum of everything makes sense. registration is hard because everyone is trying to sign up at the same time but eventually, you get most of your classes in. A popular study area is the 8th floor of the library.

5 College Senior

Academics: My major program (Sport Management) is not that challenging in terms of the course work. However, we have a wide array of connections with the NFL and tons of other opportunities. It's a popular major so be sure to get involved and stand out.

4 College Senior

Academics: It's hard to expand on this because everyone will experience this differently. Don't judge BGSU based on our acceptance rates. We have many nationally ranked programs and we've only become more selective each year that I've been here.
