First Year Programs

The first year at Bowling Green State University is filled with excitement, anticipation, and questions -- lots and lots of questions.

The first year starts off on solid ground with BGSU's comprehensive SOAR program and continues with programs designed to assist all new students. First Year Programs are all about you -- from answering your questions to helping you make a smooth transition to University life. BGSU keeps you connected to what's new throughout the entire first year with special programs and activities designed to enhance your college experience in and out of the classroom.
