» Taylor Moyer's plays tell "their side of the story"
W . Taylor Moyer is intrigued by history. Even his first elementary school "show and tell" was an indicator that he liked history. While the other children were showing off their toys, he shared an authentic dreamcatcher he had gotten at a Native American pow wow.
Today, the BGSU senior is studying adolescent and young adult education with a focus on social studies. The degree, he believes, will better enable him to help tell the stories of the Native Americans, the Civil War soldiers and other historical figures whose lives have impacted our own. And when he isn't in class or studying, he is making his own history.

Or students become alarmed when a friend begins drinking more than usual and seems pessimistic and negative. Not wanting to insult the friend, or afraid of making things worse, they say nothing.

» Young alumni businesses start with humble beginnings
It's one of our most basic instincts to tell the story of how nothing becomes something great. Bowling Green State University, the stage for countless stories, started because a small group of people in northwest Ohio asked the state to build a school. Who was the first person to speak up, that first change maker, that first activist?
Never despise humble beginnings.
What you're about to discover are the stories of three such humble beginnings.

Meeting the needs of older adults
Every day, 10,000 people in the United States turn 65. This phenomenon began Jan. 1, 2011, and is predicted to last 19 years as the baby boomers age. At the same time, people are living longer, creating a growing need for services, policies and programs that help them remain healthy, active contributors to society.
To that end, Bowling Green State University is offering a new Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Gerontology (MSIG) degree program. It is the only interdisciplinary gerontology master’s program in the state and one of only two master’s degrees specifically in gerontology offered by Ohio universities (Miami University has the other).

BGSU faculty and students working to save lake from irreparable harm
Lake Erie is the 12th largest lake in the world and the most biologically productive of the five Great Lakes, which contain 20 percent of the planet’s surface freshwater and supply drinking water to more than 35 million people. Additionally, Lake Erie is a driving force in Ohio’s tourism industry, accounting for more than $10.7 billion in revenue and employing 119,100 residents. Birding is an increasingly important tourism component that generated $26 million in revenue last year. However, ongoing threats from invasive species, toxins and pollution pose serious dangers to the lakes, their fragile ecosystems and local economies.
