Donations and Naming Opportunities 

At Bowling Green State University, our vibrant learning community focuses on fostering healthy students, both physically and emotionally. The Student Recreation Center is a vital component to connecting the academic and co-curricular lives of our students with programs and services designed to inspire an active and healthy lifestyle.

BGSU's Student Recreation Center made history in 1979 as the first stand-alone facility financed solely with student fees. Our center averages more than 480,000 visitors per year from students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community. 

The Student Recreation Center renovation project will reface the building entrance and central stairwell to create a modern look and feel, add state-of-the-art cardio and strength training equipment in an expanded space with increased natural lighting, upgraded volleyball and basketball court surfaces and renovated locker rooms. Your support is critical as we enhance the SRC to meet the needs of our current and potentional students.
