BGSU welcomes larger, academically strong freshman class

On Thursday, Aug. 20, over 3,300 new freshmen will move into their Bowling Green State University residence halls. This is an increase of more than 300 over last year’s incoming class. And for the third straight year, the group of new students is one of the strongest academically in BGSU’s history.

On Sunday, Aug. 23, BGSU will bring Opening Weekend to a close with a convocation. The event serves as the “official academic welcome” and celebrates the importance of academic excellence, innovation, integrity and discovery. The event starts at 11 a.m. in The Stroh Center.
