Bowling Green State University
A Message from the President
The University and community celebrated the BGSU Creed this month! A new initiative led by the Undergraduate Student Government, the Creed highlights the core values of the Falcon Family. This newly adopted tradition will strengthen the bond that past, current and future students have with this great University.

BGSU Creed:
I am a Falcon.
I value an education inside and outside of the classroom.
I aspire to be an engaged global citizen and leader.
I seek service to improve my community.
I collaborate with fellow Falcons in changing the world.
I promote diversity, respect, and a culture of inclusion.
I pursue excellence in all I do.
I support my Falcon family.
I believe in BGSU.
I am a Falcon.

Our Department of Architecture and Environmental Design cut the ribbon on a $4 million renovation this month. The Park Avenue Building will allow for increased collaboration among students, faculty, staff and community partners.

The College of Business Administration will host its annual Entrepreneurship Week starting April 3! Filled with events and unique learning opportunities, E-Week showcases the work of BGSU students, faculty, staff and alumni. Learn more about E-Week, including details on The Hatch and the Sebo Series in Entrepreneurship today.

BGSU is hosting Women in Philanthropy 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.

BGSU is already planning for the next academic year. Join us for Falcon Family Weekend scheduled for September 16-18 and Homecoming starting September 29. Event details will be available this summer.

April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month. Special thanks to all alumni and friends who help make this University what is it today. Whether you are committing time to serve on a University board, helping recruit prospective students, or acting on behalf of a community partner, we appreciate your support and dedication to BGSU!
