For the third year in a row, The Wall Street Journal ranks BGSU as the No. 1 public university in the Midwest students would choose again. Our students say BGSU feels like home, and we are proud to be a community where all can belong.

As a nationally ranked university of value, BGSU offers programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as fully online options.

Our students have big questions, and at BGSU, our obligation goes beyond a degree. We support students in finding answers. As the only university in the country offering Life Design on such a broad scale, every student has the opportunity to engage in a new and innovative approach to higher education designed to shape their college experience and beyond.
