BGSU named ‘Military Friendly School’ again
Once again, G.I. Jobs magazine has recognized BGSU as a Military Friendly School— at both the Bowling Green and Firelands campuses.
“We are proud of our continuing recognition as a Military Friendly School,” said Barb Henry, assistant vice president for Nontraditional and Transfer Student Services, “We foster a campus culture that is veteran friendly and the 2012 selection by G.I. Jobs demonstrates BGSU’s continued commitment to support our student veterans.”
BGSU Firelands offers a designated office and “one stop” for all veteran services and advising. “We strive to provide highly individualized support and service,” said John Clark, liaison to veteran students at BGSU Firelands. “We want to ensure that their experience here is seamless and enjoyable.”
The 2012 Military Friendly Schools List honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to help service members and veterans transition to student life.
This year, G.I. Jobs incorporated a survey of student veterans for the first time. To see the full list, click here.
Brown to discuss intimate partnerships among older adults
The landscape of romantic partnerships has shifted dramatically in several directions over the last decade. The nation now has more people than ever over 50 who are single and available to form new, unmarried unions.
Sociologist Dr. Susan Brown, co-director of the National Center for Family and Marriage Research at BGSU, will discuss recent trends and patterns in intimate relationships in her upcoming College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Faculty Lecture on “Partnering in Later Life: New Frontiers in Family Research.” Her talk, at 4 p.m. Oct. 18 in 206 Bowen-Thompson Student Union, will include a look at partnership dynamics — whether dating or cohabiting — and their consequences for individual well-being.
A reception will follow the discussion.
