Grace Link

Grace Link choose BGSU for her Master of Architecture because she knew she wanted to have classes in person and needed an affordable program. She completed her undergraduate education at Purdue University and worked in the construction management field for four years before deciding to pursue her graduate degree. She received a scholarship for her last two years of study, which she said, “opened up a lot of doors and provided a lot more flexibility for my family.”

She found a community at BGSU. She said that as part of a smaller program she felt she had easy access to her professors, who really pushed her and her classmates to go for awards to improve their own projects. With only 15-25 students in a studio class, there were significant opportunities for collaboration with fellow students and professors.

Link received two awards while at BGSU, including one from the American Institute of Architects in Dayton for her design for the new Technology Building on campus. Link was awarded the 2022 Medal for Academic Excellence from the Architects Foundation, which recognized all of her graduate work.

Link is now working as a project manager in Bellefontaine, Ohio, where she is making a direct impact on her community. Link can drive down Rt. 68 and see the buildings she’s helped to change and build. She is excited to be part of transforming the community to “a thriving place that people want to come and see.”
