BGSU Historic Campus Tour
In 2009, BGSU announced plans to construct two new residence halls, "South Central Hall," (now called Centennial Hall) located on the site of Rodgers Quadrangle, and "Northwest Hall," to be located north of Offenhauer Towers. On October 1, 2010, Northwest Hall was designated "Falcon Heights" at a meeting of the Board of Trustees. Students had the opportunity to select their preferences from a list of ten proposed names. "Falcon Heights" recognizes BGSU's centennial anniversary by honoring a name given to the temporary trailer house community which housed returning World War II veterans attending the university. Falcon Heights' focus is upperclass students. It's capacity is 646 residents, with both single and double rooms.
Among Falcon Height's features are in-unit climate control and high-speed wireless internet access. First floor amenity areas include flexible programming space, high-tech group study and workgroup spaces.
