Jacob Nobis - 1/13/2020
Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2019
"Bowling Green State University has been one of the leading teaching colleges in the United States. Because of this, the courses are intense, which must be taken into consideration if one is willing to pursue an education degree at BGSU. But there is just more than course work that is required, there are the numerous state and field requirements, which can and will be overwhelming at times. If you wish to pursue an education degree from this school, you must have persistence."

"BGSU offered me a great experience. I credit my time at the institution for helping me develop my interest, meet life-long friends and give back to students coming after me. I have been an undergraduate, graduate student and a full-time employee of BGSU. Throughout my experiences, I have had access to great opportunities for involvement, community, and professional development."

"Every college tends to offer different experiences and every student has their own "home" at a university. I felt at home at Bowling Green State University after my first visit there. Staff was easy to work with and the university really wanted what's best for their students. They constantly were updating technology and providing many services for students. This was evidenced by various food options, a multi-step authentication process for login security, and many organizations for students to be a part of. BGSU strives to bring highly skilled students and faculty to its campus to develop a strong foundation for its future leaders. It's important to remember EVERY school has its pros and cons, but the school known for being in the middle of nowhere had many pros. BGSU strives to assist students with investing and growing their passions and developing into a well-rounded adult."

Degree: International Business
Graduation Year: 2016
"I found my community at this university the second I stepped on campus. I immediately became very involved with the French House as well as Vision which is now the Queer Student Union. I loved my time here and learned so much from my peers, select faculty, and extracurricular activities. Some of my core classes were unfortunately not led by professors, but by TAs and instructors which displays a lack of investment in their students. Their career services 'taught' me how to use google to job hunt, which was not helpful especially as a millennial who grew up using google. If you're looking for a classic college experience with tons of school spirit and a rich community, this is a great school. If challenging academics are more important you're better off at OSU or anywhere else."

"Bowling Green prepared me for the ever changing world of education. When I started as a teacher I had the resources needed to help my students succeed. I also had a solid start to my professional learning network and was able to continue building my network after graduation."

Ashton - 3/15/2017
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"Although I went to the regional campus, it was simply a nice place to be. The campus was quiet, and the atmosphere was peaceful. The instructors were kind and bright, and definitely knew what they were teaching their students. The cafe was nice with plenty of options, and there were nice study spaces for quiet time to work."

Katlyn Bissell - 3/14/2017
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017
"Bowling Green State University is a wonderful college to attend! The atmosphere is great and has a comfortable feeling to it. You never have to feel unsafe, or scared even at night. The classes are intriguing, and challenge students to explore and learn more about every topic. The staff is helpful, respectful, and willing to meet with you as often as you like. I would recommend Bowling Green State University to anyone who wants to continue on to a graduate college for their doctorate of physical therapy."

Degree: Supply Chain Management
Graduation Year: 2009
"Amazing school with plenty of opportunity for growth and structure. I would strongly recommend Bowling Green State University for all undergrad programs. It prepared me substantially for my future career and gave me the advancement to stand above my peers. They guided and directed me and helped me obtain my first job right away out of college."

"Bowling Green State University is one of the top rated business schools in the country for a reason. The tools to succeed are available for all students and the staff are truly there to help! They also offer different business organizations to further your education and experiences. I wouldn't be where I am today without the education and experiences from BGSU!"

"BGSU is an amazing school to earn your degree. I learned so much inside and outside the classroom in my four years. I participated in marching band and became the section leader of the drumline and made many wonderful friends. Actually, I am newly married to one of those wonderful friends and couldn't be happier. BGSU is overflowing with opportunities to get involved and to further your career. I feel very qualified for the workplace after the instruction I recieved from my helpful, friendly and goofy professors. Take it from my 'Falcon Flame' husband and I - BGSU is the place to be!"
