Completed in 2022, the Alumni Gateway represents the thousands of BGSU alumni who have come before and the generations of future Falcons who will pass through it on their journey to create public good.


Join fellow Falcons for this fun-packed Homecoming weekend!

Sept. 21-24, 2023

We set the bar high last year when we celebrated 100 years of BGSU Homecoming, and we're bringing back popular events from that lineup as well as exciting new things for 2023.

Homecoming Events 2023

  • Familiar favorites like the Freddie and Frieda 5K are adding more fun with a Kid's Dash!
  • Our new Creativity Quest will host interactive activities with a prize for those who complete all six stations.
  • Falconland activities are bigger and better than ever with expanded kids activities and other programming in the heart of campus.
  • Tailgate Park will feature food trucks, cornhole, a beer garden, bouncy house, games galore and 20+ festive tents.

This year also marks the 100th anniversary of BGSU Bands. We'll be celebrating this milestone with special events and band performances throughout the weekend.
