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, knowing that even though things are different, your college search still needs to move forward.

On this site, you’ll find a full offering of virtual experiences – check back often, as we’re adding new events and resources regularly. We encourage you to participate in our virtual events because now is the time to start gathering information, even if virtual events aren't your preferred way to approach your college search.

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.

Go BG! Admissions Presentation

For students who are new to BGSU or starting their college search. The Go BG! Admissions Presentation will cover all the information you need to get started – scholarships, applying to BGSU, majors, life in Bowling Green, Ohio, living on campus and more. Check out this video if you can’t join us for the live virtual presentation.
