BGSU Historic Campus Tour
Saddlemire Student Services Building
The expansion of the University throughout the 1960s warranted a centralization and enlargement of student services provided by the University. Thus, in 1965, the Board of Trustees approved plans for the construction of a building to house the University Bookstore, student financial aid office, placement office, the international student center, Office of
Student Personnel, Office of Student Publications, Student Government Offices, guidance and counseling, offices for the Dean of Students, and Associate Dean of Students. Serving these functions for some forty years, the building was retired from service in 2007 and demolished, making way for the new Wolfe Center for the Arts.
Listed below are additional highlights in the history of the building:
