It takes about four hours to drive to Chicago.

The University

Bowling Green State University is part of the Ohio state university system. It is located in Northwest Ohio, about 20 miles south of Toledo. The university offers an outstanding faculty committed to students, an appreciation for diversity, the newest technology, friendly students, and a balance of classroom and co-curricular activities.

Get the personal attention and involvement you'd expect at a smaller school, along with the expert faculty, first-rate facilities and technological resources of a major university. Its medium size (ca. 19,000 students, of which approximately 2,500 are graduate students) permits selective strength and diversity, but allows the faculty and administration to avoid the impersonal attitudes and atmosphere of a larger state university. Students at Bowling Green come from all fifty states and from over fifty foreign countries.

The university offers extensive electronic technology, including the Language Learning Center, which features the latest in digital learning materials. Jerome Library has an extensive selection of German books. Using Ohio Link, you can search and order books from all of Ohio right on your computer.

For diversion there are the Moore Musical Arts Center with its two concert halls, several theaters, the Gish Film Theater, the Student Recreation Center, and a School of Art.
