    i definitely think bg is a worthy school, but it can become a little expenive for some people. i don't think its fair how if a student cannot make it home during one of the breaks that you have to pay extra to stay on campus, as if tuition wasn't enough.

    i am out of state and it isn't too expensive to live on campus however the housing off campus is a lot cheaper. there are many organizations that will feed you at their meetings so go to those meetings. made a budget and stick with it, otherwise you'll end up staving.

    Bowling Green State University is on the cheaper end of other colleges I considered attending. Also the school had my major, marine biology and offered me the most scholarship money. I definitely feel like I made the right choice with Bowling Green because I am getting a great education at cheaper than other schools in Ohio.

    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.
