Doyt Perry Stadium | 3:00 p.m.



BGSU invites you to participate in the Homecoming Parade on Friday, October 12, and to incorporate the Parade theme “Falcons Forever” into the float design. The Parade will also include the undergraduate Homecoming Court, local dignitaries, special entries and members of the Bowling Green community.  The Parade starts at 5:30 p.m., traveling from South Grove and Wooster to Wooster and Mercer.   



Float building is a great experience for students and a great opportunity to fellowship with members from other student organizations through a float partnership.

Register your 2018 Homecoming Parade Float

Deadline is 5 PM on Friday, September 28


Special entries comprise all entries not in the float, local dignitary, or Homecoming Court categories. Examples include: local school boards, dance teams, and city offices. Entries should be creative and distinctive. Ingenuity is strongly encouraged.


The Pep Rally occurs in Falcon Tailgate Park on Saturday, October 13, at 12:45 p.m. Kickoff at 3:30 p.m.


Homecoming 2018 would not be complete without a royal court! One of the most time-honored traditions at Bowling Green State University is Homecoming royalty. As a member of the BGSU community, you may nominate students for the Court who are full-time students and who have achieved senior status for the Court. Nominees must be graduating in December 2018 or May or August 2019. Homecoming Court candidates should demonstrate commitment in and out of the classroom and show BGSU spirit. The Homecoming King and Queen, elected from this Court, will serve as ambassadors for the University.
