BGSU names historic quadrangle in recognition of Thompsons’ generosity
Bowling Green State University has named the historic heart of its campus the Bowen-Thompson Quadrangle in honor of the University’s most generous philanthropists – Robert and Ellen (Bowen) Thompson.
More than 300 students and alumni, whose lives have been changed through the Thompsons’ generosity, joined the couple and University officials to dedicate the tree-lined quadrangle in front of University Hall on May 10.
“The generosity of Robert and Ellen Thompson has had a profound, immeasurable impact on Bowling Green State University,” said BGSU President Rodney K. Rogers. “Their commitment to their alma mater has influenced its physical appearance, enhanced the student experience, and has and will continue to transform the lives of thousands of students. There is not a more fitting name for the heart of our Bowling Green campus.”
