Dawn Shinew, '86 and '92
This fall, our college welcomed almost 900 undergraduate and graduate students to the Falcon Family. As part of our new tradition, all of these new students were invited to ring the bell at the Little Red Schoolhouse. I hope that the BGSU alumni reading this will take a moment to remember the first time you walked onto campus as a Falcon. I remember that moment clearly, and can see in retrospect the incredible impact that being a Falcon has had on my life.
I invite you to revisit your own Falcon memories at this fall's events. While maybe not as exciting as your very first day as a Falcon, I can almost guarantee that you'll have a chance to meet new friends. . . and I'll bring the freshly sharpened pencils!
