U.S. News & World Report cites BGSU

Bowling Green’s learning communities have once again received national attention. The 2007 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” cites BGSU in “Programs to Look For.”

This is the fourth straight year BGSU has appeared on the list of campuses nationwide with outstanding learning communities. Only 24 institutions nationally were recognized for their learning communities. The others include Indiana University, Iowa State, Miami University, the University of Maryland-College Park and Yale.

In BGSU’s small-group residential learning communities, students with similar interests and goals live and study together. They work closely with outstanding faculty who teach and have offices in the residence halls where the academically based programs are housed. The University also offers themed learning communities.

This is the fifth year U.S. News & World Report’s college rankings issue has featured listings of outstanding academic programs that are thought to lead to student success.
