Bowling Green State University
A Message from the President
The start of the spring semester brings new opportunities for all students, faculty and staff. I'm launching a new format of Mazey@BGSU and will continue to share important updates and news about this great University!

BGSU honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this month. More than 600 students, faculty and staff volunteered in the community. Special thanks to our community partners who helped make the day a success. We were also inspired by Wil Haygood, author of "The Butler," who visited campus to share his powerful story.

Last month, nearly 1,000 students graduated from BGSU. Commencement speakers Emanuele Conti '89 and Howard Aldrich '65, '15 (Hon.) shared life lessons with the newest Falcon alumni. Throughout the weekend, students highlighted their "Falcon Moments."

Recently, I wrote an opinion article focused on the state of intercollegiate athletics. As we face the ever-changing landscape of higher education, BGSU is committed to overcoming the funding challenges for our student-athletes.

Football head coach Mike Jinks has finalized his coaching staff and is preparing for the season. His team of experienced professionals is invested in the success of our student-athletes on and off the field. Save the date for the 2016 Homecoming celebration. We're looking forward to seeing the Falcon Family return to campus for this special tradition on October 1!

Preparations for Bravo! BG are underway. The signature event is planned for April 2. Reserve your ticket now to experience a memorable evening showcasing student and faculty talent in the arts. Also, Alumni Summer College is scheduled for June. Looking forward to seeing you at this special week.


Mary Ellen Mazey, Ph.D.
