Simply stating, style is the "hook" that makes me choose a book when I am browsing at a bookstore or at Amazon.com. Whether it is fiction or nonfiction, the author's choice of words, the tone of the narrative, an unusual description, the underlying irony, the sense of humor, a dialog that flows naturally - this is what gets my attention and makes me turn to the second page of a book or turn to another book cover.
» Sunny Boys Quartet shines at international competition
Bowling Green State University continued its longstanding tradition of excellence in vocal performance this July when The Sunny Boys placed second in the collegiate quartet division at the Barbershop Harmony Society’s International Convention in Toronto, Canada — despite the far-flung group members’ having had to rehearse together largely online, through Skype.

Here are a few of my favorite reads worth picking up and chock full of advice that is relative to both sport and daily life."
» BGSU alumna dedicates her ministry to designing ceramic murals
Artists often have faith in coming up with unique ideas for their next sculpture or painting. But one artist and BGSU alumna combines her faith in God with her love of art.
Sister Jane Mary Sorosiak'83 is a Sister of St. Francis who received her master's degree in art at Bowling Green State University in the 1960s. Today, she weaves together art and faith to further her ministry by creating beautiful and inspiring ceramic murals for churches and other buildings.
» Falcon ties run strongly through the Primrose family.
The story begins with William Primrose Jr. ’42 who is one of the few living alumni to have known all of BGSU’s presidents.
William remembers visiting campus as a prospective student with his mother and father. “We were just walking around when a man came over to shake our hands. He said, ‘Hello, I’m President Homer Williams.’ Well, we were just so impressed that the president would come out to meet us. I knew right then that Bowling Green was where I wanted to be,” said William.

» Summer Reading List - Dr. Heath A. Diehl '00 - Instructor, Honors Program
My reading tastes are pretty eclectic. As someone with both undergraduate and graduate degrees in literature, I can enjoy a good "classic" novel - like Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice or Thomas Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd or Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights. One of my favorite types of books, though, has always been the mystery novel. Since I was a kid, I have devoured mysteries - graduating from Encyclopedia Brown to Nancy Drew to Miss Marple and Sherlock Holmes. These days, I read a lot of serial mystery fiction by American women, with some of my favorites being Sue Grafton's alphabet series, Earlene Fowler's Bennie Harper series, and Mary Daheim's Bed and Breakfast series.

>> Text-mining project impacts child abuse cases
Two BGSU students have a hand in a text-mining project that could impact the outcome of child abuse cases in Ohio.
In partnership with several county offices of the Ohio Job and Family Services’ (OJFS) agency, Quality Systems graduate students Mike Adams and Armen Ilikchyan are analyzing child welfare data to reduce failure rates in placing children in at-risk environments. They are working with Wood, Auglaize, Knox, Licking and Sandusky counties on a model that eventually could be used statewide.
» Ludy tapped for highly selective leadership institute
First lady Michelle Obama brought the obesity epidemic to the forefront in 2010 with her Let's Move! campaign aimed at putting children on the path to a healthy future.
Just as the first lady is working to transform a culture, so too is Dr. Mary-Jon Ludy, assistant professor in the School of Family and Consumer Sciences.
» Rogers team identifies species in most inhospitable realm
Lake Vostok, buried under a glacier in Antarctica, is so dark, deep and cold that scientists had considered it a possible model for other planets, a place where nothing could live.
However, work by Dr. Scott Rogers, a Bowling Green State University professor of biological sciences, and his colleagues has revealed a surprising variety of life forms possibly living and reproducing in this most extreme of environments. A paper published July 2 in PLOS ONE (Public Library of Science) details the thousands of species they identified through DNA and RNA sequencing.
» Summer Reading List - Dr. Simon Morgan-Russell, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences
As a lifelong, avid reader, I'm never without a pile of books I'm reading all at once. My interests are pretty diverse, but I mostly read contemporary British fiction; books about Buddhist spirituality and practice; nonfiction that helps me understand people and cultures around me; books about food; and, well, more or less anything that someone recommends!
» Nikki Chiricosta, BGSU student-athlete, Senior, Falcon Tennis
In the summertime, I enjoy lying out by the pool and indulging in a good book. I am a big proponent of reading a book and watching the movie, but I think you have to read the book first in order to gain a complete understanding. Movies don't always allow time for the intricate details and they often change the story a little. Here are some of my favorite books that are also movies.
>> Students visit campus for orientation, advising and registration.
The month of May marked the end of a successful journey for thousands of BGSU students as they walked across the stage and accepted their diplomas. May also marked the beginning of a journey for the newest class at BGSU who arrived from across the country for Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR).
Though SOAR began in May, it continues throughout the summer - carloads of incoming students and their families, groggy from waking early, in unfamiliar territory, excited yet anxious about beginning the college orientation and registration process.
>> Daniela Carrillo finds fast lane to excellence at BGSU
First-year students face a long list of life-altering adjustments during the transition from high school to college life. In the case of BGSU's 425 student-athletes, that list of demands and sacrifices can be particularly challenging as academic responsibilities are balanced with the rigors of intercollegiate athletic competition.
Now add the process of acclimating to myriad cultural differences as an international student, and you begin to understand the real-life crucible that freshman swimming sensation Daniela Carrillo conquered in her inaugural year as a Falcon.
