Bowling Green State University
A Message from the President
February captured the unique BG experience! This month, more than 3,000 guests visited campus during Presidents' Day, dozens of employers were here to recruit students at the Spring Career EXPO, and 25,000 Falcon Flames celebrated Valentine's Day.

Our College of Health and Human Services cut the ribbon on a $9.2 million expansion and renovation. The College also announced three new degree programs to meet the needs of the health-care industry.

Special thanks to Pulitzer Prize-winner Katherine Boo, author of "Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity," for visiting campus and spending time with our students and the BG community. Her novel was the 2015-16 Common Read for BGSU.

Congratulations to the clinical psychology doctoral program on their new national rankings! This recognition highlights our reputation for research and professional development.

Bravo! BG is just weeks away. The evening of April 2 will be memorable. Students and faculty will showcase what makes the arts at BGSU so special. Reserve your ticket today to support student scholarships.

BGSU is hosting the Women in Philanthropy Summit on Saturday, May 14, in partnership with the University of Findlay and Otterbein University. The final of three programs, this event is designed to increase dialogue and discussion related to the multiple roles women play in philanthropy.

Return to BGSU this summer for the inaugural Alumni Summer College, designed to offer special programming for all alumni and friends. The Golden Falcons will also be honored that week.

The BG community is looking forward to more progress in the months ahead. Thank you for all that you do for BGSU!
