  Family Weekend

Step 1: Learn About It

 Falcon Family Weekend is an annual tradition on Bowling Green State University's campus. Our goal is to bring parents and families to the BGSU campus to reconnect with their students and see what life is like as a Falcon. We value your support of our university community and hope to see you during the next Family Weekend!
