For the fourth year in a row, The Wall Street Journal ranks BGSU as the No. 1 public university in the Midwest that students would choose again. BGSU also holds the Wall Street Journal distinction of being the No. 1 university in Ohio - public or private - for student experience. Our students say BGSU feels like home, and we are proud to be a community where all can belong.

As a nationally ranked university of value, BGSU offers programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as fully online options.

Our students have big questions, and at BGSU, our obligation goes beyond a degree. We support students in finding answers. As the only university in the country offering Life Design on such a broad scale, every student has the opportunity to engage in a new and innovative approach to higher education designed to shape their college experience and beyond.

Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a tier-one university, BGSU research and creative activities address significant issues facing society - from water quality, to the opioid epidemic to plastic alternatives. As a leading research hub in Ohio and one of only eight public universities in the country with the Community Engagement Classification from the Carnegie Foundation, BGSU researchers are driving economic vitality in the state and beyond, impacting industries through innovation, improving lives and impacting us all.
