If you are working with any court system other than the Bowling Green Municipal Court, please call 419-372-2081 and ask to speak to the Alcohol Counselor.

Registration is required; please call the Counseling Center at 419-372-2081 to register.  The Perspectives class is a two and one-half hour class held various times throughout the semester.

The cost of the class is $100 payable by cash, check, credit card or BG1 Card. Plan to arrive at the Counseling Center 15 minutes prior to the start of the class to complete paperwork. The class will start promptly at the scheduled time; anyone arriving late will NOT be permitted to enter.

Students are likely to be exposed to alcohol at some point during their time in college. Being aware of the effects can prevent unwanted events occurring in the future.

Individual counseling is available for support, education, prevention, and intervention. Confidential appointments may be made by calling 419-372-2081.
