Welcome to the BGSU Virtual College Search Experience

What does a "virtual" college search look like? We’re answering that question with you in mind. There's no better way to decide if a school is the right fit than to visit and explore for yourself but to get the most out of your college search, we recommend a combination of both in-person and virtual experiences.

On this site, you’ll find a full offering of virtual options – check back often, as we’re adding new events and resources regularly.

These virtual opportunities are designed to compliment in-person visits and provide the information and access you need every step of the way.

Let's dive in. Get started with a virtual information session.

We want to make sure you’re getting all the information and support you need as you’re looking ahead to your first year at BGSU. The best way to do that is to attend our short (30 minutes or less!) virtual information sessions. While virtual events may not be as appealing as an in-person visit to campus, they may be our only way of connecting you to the faculty, current students and information you need as you navigate your college search.
