Pillars of Success
Your journey at BGSU begins with your first steps as a student taken at SOAR. To guide your first steps and set you on the path to success, we established the Pillars of Success: Academic Success, Career Development, Leadership & Engagement, and Personal & Fiscal Responsibility. You are encouraged to focus your experience around these four outcomes during your journey at BGSU, as the Pillars are the foundation to everything you engage in throughout your time here.
Career Development is the life-long process of identifying interests, values and skills while seeking and obtaining experiences and opportunities to identify and pursue possible career paths.
Personal & Fiscal Responsibility
Personal & Fiscal Responsibility is the acknowledgment of new freedoms and obligations, and the ability to make choices that result in positive outcomes for oneself and the surrounding community.
