Get Engaged, Support our Students

One of best ways to give back is to support our current BGSU students. There are many ways to get involved and build up the network of Falcons because we are always stronger together. Check out the best ways to make a direct impact for our current Falcons and find meaningful ways to stay involved.

Affinity Groups

Affinity Groups are organized around a common interest (fraternities and sororities, sports clubs, music and performing arts organizations, etc). Much like Regional Networks, these groups actively support the University through student recruitment, career mentoring, scholarship fundraising, community service and social activities.
 

Recruit a Student

One of BGSU's most valuable resources is its network of alumni. More colleges and programs than ever are competing for a limited number of college-age applicants, and this challenging environment isn't likely to ease in the near future. That's why you are so important: first-hand experience of BGSU's history, traditions, and spirit gives Falcon graduates a unique voice in speaking to young people about the value of a BGSU diploma.

Recent Alumni Council

Members of the Bowling Green State University Recent Alumni Council (BGSU RAC) serve as ambassadors for BGSU and the BGSU Alumni Office to the all alumni, friends, family and members of the BGSU community. The Recent Alumni Council advocates for the interests of recent alumni and fosters relationships between the University and recent alumni. Recent alumni are terms used to describe those alumni who have graduated within the past 0-10 years.

Current Volunteers

We appreciate all of our alumni and friends that give their time and talent to support Bowling Green State University. To support those efforts we have created guidelines and support tools to help each of our volunteers be successful.
