A message from the Dean

Fall offers a cornucopia of reasons that makes it a perfect time to be a Falcon. Orange and brown are the colors of the season, and a new academic year supplies an abundance of good news to share with you.

At Homecoming we proudly cut the ribbon to open the doors for the Michael & Sara Kuhlin Center, the new home for the School of Media & Communication. Most of our alumni know the building by its previous directional name – South Hall – but they might not recognize it as the same place. The technology-rich renovation has also changed the feel and energy within the facility. Come and visit; see the transformation of the space, the cutting-edge technologies and the students who will be future leaders in media and communication.

Our faculty continue their rigorous schedules of research, teaching and scholarship. Dr. Andrew Torelli participated in a “Citizen Science” presentation to members of Congress where he introduced “InSPECTOR.” Dr. Wendy Manning was named the top American Sociological Association officer and Dr. Jonathan Chambers was honored for teaching and mentorship in theatre.

For the third consecutive year, BGSU admitted the best academically prepared class in the University’s history. The Class of 2020 has an average ACT score of 22.8 and an average GPA of 3.42. The University and the College continue to admit the best and the brightest students. As alumni and friends of the college you can help us to recruit: please encourage students who are looking at colleges to consider BGSU, and send us your busines card—we are featuring alumni business cards at our BGSU Preview Days to show prospective students how successful our graduates are in their careers. Scan your business cards, add your major and your grad year and send to artsandsciences@bgsu.edu.

We are sending these newsletters so that you will hear the recent news about A&S at BGSU. We welcome your involvement, ideas and support. Feel free to contact us at artsandsciences@bgsu.edu.

Regards,

Raymond Craig, Ph.D.
Dean

Inside the College
Science Roots
One hundred years ago Moseley Hall was a new science and agriculture building when BGSU was a teacher education college and students in training needed to know about science and agriculture. Fast forward 100 years, and now Moseley Hall is being returned to its science roots after decades of serving as a general-purpose building. BGSU is making an investment in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education by launching a new interdisciplinary science complex within Moseley. Scheduled to open in fall 2017, Moseley Hall will revolutionize the way science and other STEM courses are taught.
