BGSU invites public to tour renovated Moseley, University halls

Open houses also will feature other recently renovated buildings

University-Moseley

Community members are invited to tour Bowling Green State University’s renovated Moseley and University halls during open houses Aug. 10 and 12.

Attendees will also be able to tour several other newly renovated facilities including the Michael & Sara Kuhlin Center and Falcon Outfitters and the Career Center, which are located in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union. Tour guides will also share information about the new Robert W. and Patricia A. Maurer Center, which will house the College of Business.

Our facilities are a critical component of the BG Experience,” said BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey. “Next-generation teaching and learning spaces help to ensure that our students are prepared to compete and succeed after graduation.”

The renovated University Hall will house the Office of Admissions, cutting-edge classrooms emphasizing technology, and active learning spaces. Because of their central role in BGSU’s mission, almost every prospective or current BGSU student will have classes or use services now located in these historic buildings.

A key component of BGSU’s commitment to active learning and leadership is the renovation of University Hall to house all of the BG Experience programs, providing a central location for programs that are fundamental to a BGSU student's collegiate experience. These include the Center for Community and Civic Engagement, pre-professional programs, International Programs and Partnerships, the Academic Investment in Math and Science program, the Center of Excellence in Science and Mathematics Education: Opportunities for Success, the Center for Undergraduate Research and Scholarship, Science and Math Education in ACTION and the Learning Communities office.

The renovated Moseley Hall houses an interdisciplinary science complex featuring state-of-the-art, flexible laboratory and classroom spaces accommodating a broad range of science disciplines – biology, chemistry, geology and medical laboratory sciences.

The first open house will be held from 5-7:30 p.m. Aug. 10. Tours begin at 5:30, 6 and 6:30 p.m.

The second opportunity for community members to tour the new spaces will be held from noon to 2 p.m. Aug. 12.

Tours begin at noon and 1 p.m. Free parking will be available in Lot A, which is located at the corner of Wooster Street and South College Drive. The buildings will be open for visitors to explore. Attendees interested in a tour should meet in the lobby on the first floor of University Hall.
