BGSU: A legacy of scholarship and service
Over the last century, Bowling Green State University has continually adapted to meet the needs of students from around the world. At its 100th anniversary, the small normal school created to train teachers in northwest Ohio is now a vibrant, nationally recognized university.
This brief overview — largely based on discussions with Dr. Gary Hess, professor emeritus of history at BGSU, and his new book entitled Bowling Green State University, 1910–2010: A Legacy of Excellence — provides a look back at the University’s first century of service and how BGSU evolved over the years. We expect your Falcon pride will be even stronger after reading about Bowling Green’s legacy of scholarship and service.
