BGSU Hosts Education Day for future students
On Monday, October 24, Bowling Green State University, with the College of Education and Human Development welcomed 150 high school juniors and seniors to campus for Education Day. These students were introduced to the College’s teacher education programs, met with current students and talked with faculty.
“Education Day is a great event for our College,” said Dr. Dawn Shinew, Dean of the College of Education and Human Development. “It is important to share our top-notch curriculum and programs with prospective students who are thinking about BGSU for their college experience.”
The College of Education and Human Development has eight teacher education programs that are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation. All teacher education students receive multiple field experiences, starting as early as their first semester with the program. In addition, our teacher education graduates earn more, on average, than graduates from any other university in the state, according to a study done by Payscale.
Students from schools in and around Northwest Ohio enjoyed a welcome from the Dean, followed by various breakout sessions. Breakout sessions included a tour of the Education building, hands-on activities with faculty and current BGSU students, program overviews and a panel with students from a variety of teacher education programs.
Students will have additional opportunities to visit BGSU and learn about teacher education through one of our admissions events. Preview Day is Dec. 3, 9 a.m. – noon followed by Presidents’ Day February and spring Preview Day in April 2017.
