Bowling Green State University Reviews
I love Bowling Green State University! It is such an amazing and beautiful campus. Even though the weather isn't all that great in Bowling Green, that doesn't stop the students of doing different things. Downtown is so close to campus and it allows the students to try local restaurants and go to cute boutiques. In addition, the student life on campus is a wonderful. There are so many student organizations that a ton of people are apart of and they also have greek life which is amazing community. Bowling Green is a wonderful place and I fell in love with it when I first visited the campus. Once I stepped on campus, I knew I wanted to be a falcon at Bowling Green State University.
Bowling Green State University is a very great college. It is very affordable and has a very beautiful and big campus. The professors are very engaged with their students and lead them on the right path to succeed. It is a very safe and fun environment to be in. The campus food is great and so are the people. It is a very friendly type of environment. Things I would love to see change is the hours of operation of the dining halls. I believe the dining halls should be opened until midnight instead of 8 or 9 so kids can have a late bite to eat. Other than that, Bowling green is the best university to attend!
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.
