Campus charts its future with Master Plan

Master Plan

Things are changing quickly on campus these days, with several important projects under way, from the Wolfe Center for the Arts and the Stroh Center to preparations for new residence and dining halls.

BGSU is making a fresh start on its second century, using as a blueprint the Campus Master Plan, Strategic Plan and the Residence and Dining Hall Master Plan. As President Carol Cartwright notes, the Master Plan links to goal six of the Strategic Plan: to create an “optimal fiscal and physical plant infrastructure.”

A new Web site has been designed to communicate all these developments. At, you can find a wealth of usable information.

You can track the construction by clicking on the Office of Capital Planning link and then choosing Campus Construction Map under the Resources box on the right.

You can view the sites themselves with the webcams trained on the Stroh, Wolfe and South Central residence hall sites. The images are refreshed every 12 minutes. Click on Links at the bottom left of the Master Plan home page.

And you can see renderings of the new buildings under the New Spaces, New Places link.

Check this new resource page regularly for updates.
