"The first time I visited campus it felt like home. The students are enthusiastic and ready to learn. The faculty and staff are eager to help and to build one-on-one relationships with students. BGSU gives students so many opportunities to succeed-both in and
out of the classroom."
A commitment to students From the excitement of move-in day through all the fun and informative events planned for Fall Welcome, we want you to
know we’re glad you chose BGSU. 16>
On the right track BGSU’s first-year programs will help ease your transition to college life, provide valuable personal and academic skills and keep you up-to-date on what’s happening throughout your entire first year. The First Year Success Series, a year-long series of workshops and activities, or BGSU 1000 as you will know it, all help you explore a host of resources on campus. Being engaged in your education makes your college experience more fun.
Make yourself at home Options at BGSU make it easy to develop connections within a smaller community while being active in the wider University community. You may choose to experience one of BGSU’s award-winning residential learning communities where you can share in service, social and leadership experiences with close friends. With eight to choose from, you have plenty of options. And it’s proven that students learn best when their academic and personal lives are linked. BG also offers a wide variety of on-campus resources for off-campus students including an on-the-go meal plan and commuter lounge, as well as opportunities for leadership development, community service projects and involvement in student organizations.
Finding your way academically BGSU offers a number of options for students who wish to explore various programs before choosing a major. You can begin your studies in Pre-Major Advising, where advisors are assigned to guide you through the process. Or you may enter a college as an “undecided” major with the goal of choosing an area of study in that college later.
