Return to Campus
As BGSU prepares to repopulate our campuses, the health and safety of our campus communities are the top priorities. There will be inherent risk in all activities, however, a calculated and thorough return to campus plan allows us to mitigate much of this risk. With direction from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the State of Ohio and Ohio Department of Health, and the Wood County Health Department, we are working on a re-entry plan that will continue to be updated throughout the upcoming weeks, so be sure to check back often.
