Resources for Parents and Families

Here at BGSU we want to provide parents and family members of our students with all of the resources they need to help them with the challenges and changes that life with a college student brings. Students benefit greatly from having involved and informed parents, and it is because of this that we want to give the parents and families of our students every resource we can to help them, from orientation to graduation and beyond.
