Located on the campus of BGSU in Bowling Green, Ohio, the Slater Family Ice Arena has been serving the University and local communities for 51 years since our grand opening in February of 1967. The BGSU Ice Arena was named Slater Family Ice Arena in 2017 in honor of a transformative gift from Scott Slater and his family that was designed to advance the future of the facility.
The 50-year legacy of Bowling Green’s beloved Ice Arena lives on as we begin the next 50 years of excellence and service to the community.
