Coming soon to a theater near you—Falcon Film Festival

Falcon Film Festival Ticket

For a hundred years, BGSU students have lived through the novelty and sometimes trials of adjusting to campus life. Taking the shuttle, girlfriend problems, studying vs. socializing—for an inside look at today’s students’ perception of their experiences at BGSU, come to the sixth annual Falcon Film Festival on Feb. 27. All students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to attend the free event, which begins at 7 p.m. in 101 Olscamp Hall. The doors open at 6 p.m.

The Falcon Film Festival invites teams of BGSU students to creatively produce videos capturing their college experience. Festival judges have evaluated the submitted videos, and the top eight films will be shown at the festival.

A first-, second- and third-place prizewinner will be selected, and Best Actor and Best Actress awards will be given. In addition, audience members will be eligible to win raffle prizes.

This event is sponsored by the BGSU offices of the Chief Information Officer and Residence Life, with refreshments provided by Coca-Cola.

Family Campaign supports students, scholarships and success

More than ever, a college education is a necessity for success in life. Yet, in today’s economic climate, help with the cost of obtaining that education is also more critical. The Bowling Green family—faculty, staff and retirees—has been there to help with scholarships, which often make the difference in a student’s being able to attend BGSU.

The annual Family Campaign is the vehicle for providing this help.

Just as important, in addition to scholarships, is the support the campaign provides across campus, to departments, programs and initiatives that keep the campus vital. Over its history, the Family Campaign has raised more than $10 million, thanks to the extraordinary generosity of the University community.

To make a gift to this year’s campaign, you can use a check or credit card or contribute by payroll deduction. You can also direct your gift to any of more than 400 accounts in the BGSU Foundation, Inc. Return your contribution form to your area representative or send it to the BGSU Foundation, Inc., at Mileti Alumni Center.

Do you know a student who needs help with math class? In-Depth Tutoring Sessions for Math 95X, Math 1120 and Math 1220 are provided throughout the semester. The goal of the sessions is to go more deeply into the course materials for students who feel that they need a little more detail than class time allows.

Sessions are held on a variety of days and times for each course. For more about these sessions and other information, visit the center’s Web site
