Congratulations, Class of ’74!

Members of the class of 1974 have told us that while their years at BGSU were filled with momentous change, political turmoil and protest, what they remember best is the smell of tomatoes from the Heinz factory, the mugs of 3.2 beer at Howard’s, cramming for finals in the new library and the special friendships that were made on campus.

The year 2014 promises to bring more fun as Bowling Green State University celebrates the 40th reunion of the Class of 1974!

We invite you to celebrate this milestone with us! The reunion is scheduled for Fall October 3 - 5, 2014 when BGSU football plays the University of Buffalo.
