Be part of planning for future of residence life, dining services

Residence Life and University Dining Services invite the BGSU community to be part of an important planning process as they consider the Bowling Green campus environment of the future.

In response to a shift in demographics and evolving campus needs, the University has contracted for a comprehensive consultation to provide a long-term master/business plan. The business plan will include capital renewal and replacement strategies, with accompanying schedules to implement the master plan.

The University has engaged WTW Architects, a nationally respected planning and design firm, to provide a Residence Life and Dining Services Master Plan. WTW successfully worked with BGSU to gather student and staff opinions in developing plans for the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.

WTW will conduct a focus group and open forum from 6-8 p.m. April 27 in 228 Union. The purpose is to obtain insight from faculty, staff and students based on their experiences and observations in BGSU residence halls and dining centers. This input may help direct the creation and/or renovation of campus facilities.
