Since 1929, the College of Arts and Sciences at BGSU has offered innovative and engaging academic programs to the students at Bowling Green State University, educating young leaders through a rich liberal arts curriculum and offering areas of study in the sciences that take you from the depths of the Great Lakes to the farthest corners of the universe. All of our programs feature advanced equipment for research and learning.
Welcome to the College!
Although we're BGSU's largest college, we pride ourselves on the personal attention we afford students. The College advising staff is available to help undecided students determine the major that's right for them, explore career options, schedule classes, and plan ahead so they can graduate on time. Faculty advisors in each of our departments are also available to advise their majors about internships, co-ops, courses, graduate school, and careers as well as talk to them about their long-range aspirations and immediate concerns.

2016 MASTER TEACHER MELISSA MILLER SHARES HER LOVE OF LEARNING WITH STUDENTS
Dr. Melissa Miller, named the 2016 Master Teacher at Bowling Green State University, believes the most important aspect of teaching is sharing a contagious enthusiasm for learning.
“While brilliant scholars can bore students to proverbial tears, brilliant teachers convey a contagious enthusiasm for learning that is literally infectious,” Miller wrote. “Enthusiasm drives all of the other factors we tend to bandy about when ticking off what makes a great teacher: passion, dedication, charisma, intellect.”
Miller, associate professor in the Department of Political Science, received the prestigious Master Teacher Award at the Faculty Excellence Awards Ceremony and Reception April 14. This is the highest teaching award presented to faculty and the only student-driven and student-selected award at BGSU. It comes with a $1,000 check presented by the Student Alumni Connection.

CLASSIFIED STAFF TEAM AWARD BERTA, BUSDEKER AND SEUBERT ADD UP PERFECTLY
Like a well-oiled machine, Barbara Berta, Mary Busdeker and Marcia Seubert keep the Department of Mathematics and Statistics running smoothly. This is good news for students and faculty in the best of times, but especially impressive during times of great transition, as the last two years have been for the department.
In recognition of their achievement and the graciousness with which they go above and beyond their official duties, the three were presented the Classified Staff Team Award on May 18 at the annual Classified Staff Council reception and awards ceremony. The team will share a $1,500 award and their names will be displayed on a commemorative plaque in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.
NEWLY NAMED MICHAEL & SARA KUHLIN CENTER
The facility at Bowling Green State University now known as “South Hall,” will be changed to the “Michael & Sara Kuhlin Center” in recognition of the couple’s financial support. The facility will be referred to as the “Kuhlin Center” and will house the School of Media and Communication.
Michael and Sara both attended Bowling Green State University: Sara, from 1967 to 1969; and Mike from 1964 to 1968, receiving a journalism degree from the College of Business Administration in 1968. Mike was actively involved in student organizations on campus which led to him being selected as BGSU’s Outstanding Greek Man in 1968 and a member of the Omicron Delta Kappa national leadership honor society. Both also worked at the University. Sara was employed in the Administration Building and the Office of Financial Aid from 1969 to 1971. Mike worked in the Office of the Dean of Students as a residence hall director and was an assistant director in the Office of Career Planning and Placement from 1968 to 1971. They married on campus, in Prout Chapel, on December 11, 1971. Their 42 years together included many trips back to campus before Sara passed away in 2013.
