What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
I think the campus is beautiful, well laid out, and the perfect size. There is a good amount of food options to choose from on campus. It is very flat in Bowling Green therefore the campus is extraordinarily windy, which can be a real pain.
Manda from Martins Ferry, OH
The perfect place to be nestled into a family of students, faculty, and community members while still being given the freedom to swim around in a large pond (of 16,000 students). A student can't walk to class without seeing four or five friends, though there are always many, many more friends to be made when the time for change comes. If you're looking for the home away from home that lets you spread your wings and experiment however it is that you choose to, BGSU is perfect for you!
