Bowling Green State University Reviews
I attended BGSU in my freshman year. At first, the adjustment was really different and difficult. However, I would suggest getting involved and putting yourself out there will assist you in making new friends. On campus clubs, recreational / intramural sports and other on-campus activities are a great way to get in the scene! Also, if you can, I would suggest getting a part time job on campus; after all who enjoys not having any money! On the other hand, I would love to see more diversity, if I had to give diversity a rating, I'd say an average C. In addition, I think they should also have more fun and exciting things and event on campus or locally for students to enjoy, I mean after all what are we paying for?! All in all, I enjoyed my year at BGSU with making friends and being involved on campus.
BG is great! The faculty are helpful; whether for a passing question, or working with me for extended periods of time. They've encouraged me about goals I want to pursue, big or small. My teachers have been fantastic, as well; they're enthusiastic about their subjects and always willing to help students out if they don't understand the material. The courses themselves have challenged me intellectually, which I appreciate. I'm impressed by the wide range of clubs. It's also great to have so many Christian groups on campus; I never feel uncomfortable about my faith. I can always find something I like to eat at the dining areas, which is an impressive feat. I have had no issues with my housing and the campus feels safe, which I really appreciate since I've had to walk around at night a few times. The only thing I would wish to change is the BG website. Although it's really helpful when you know what you're doing; it can be extremely hard to navigate. Overall, BG has been phenomenal!
As an incoming freshman at Bowling Green State University, I can actually say that after being on campus multiple times and multiple tours throughout my high school career, this university has an amazing educational atmosphere! The student life and athletics are great too! I never had any problems with anything or anyone at BGSU! Everyone from students to faculty have been super amazing and helpful with anything that I needed assistance with. BGSU is the best educational decision that I have ever made! I am so excited to start my college journey at Bowling Green State University.
