Departmental Programming Schedules and Graduate Ambassadors


Departmental programming is in addition to the Graduate College sessions during GSO Week.

Schedules will be hyperlinked below as they become finalized.


A Graduate Student Ambassador (Ambassador) is a returning graduate student who serves as a role model to prospective and incoming graduate students.  The Ambassadors assist in forming a connection to BGSU with incoming graduate students through outreach over the summer prior to GSO.  Ambassadors aim to serve as a resource to incoming graduate students providing knowledge about the graduate culture and resources available to support graduate student success.  Be on the lookout for communication from your assigned Ambassador over the summer!
