    Tuition at BGSU is very low, especially compared to other universities. I do not feel, however, that I am getting a worse education because of the cost. I actually have felt like I have received an excellent education and have had the most knowledgeable professors who are passionate about what they are teaching.

    Bowling Green offers more than I ever thought it would. There's an on campus medical center if you ever aren't feeling well. The library offers so many awesome things as well. If you just need to talk to someone, there are counselors and psychologists available for you to talk to for free! There are video and sound recording devices you can rent, bikes you can use, TV's everywhere, along with plugs for laptops and phones. The Rec center is currently being amazingly updated and I am so monumentally excited for when that is done later in 2014. BG has so much to offer, it really is worth the money you put in.

    BGSU is pretty cheap, but not as cheap as your local community college. If it's too expensive for you and you want to go there APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIPS! Fill out the FAFSA, and get good grades! Also get a high ACT score! Work hard for it, they offer great money for high SAT/ACT scores!
