  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]
  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with. It could also mean people you’ve found during your life journey. Either way, the holidays are meant for spending quality time with those you […]

University’s new ‘do

Things change. They always are and always will, even here at BGSU.

Some things are noticeable; others are not. Some are still in progress and others are complete.

Here’s a list of what physically changed (or still is changing) on campus:

If you are new to BGSU, this is the information to follow. If you’re a returning student, a refresher might be good for you, too.

Information was provided by Bob Waddle, assistant vice president of capital planning, Gail Finan, dining services director, Stacie Enriquez, parking and traffic manager and Jim Elsasser, assistant athletic director of internal affairs.

Dining Hall Changes

Campus Corners and Chily’s have been painted.

The Neighborhood Deli is now called BG Sub.

Chily’s is installing new back-fill refrigerators so workers refilling the refigerators are out of shopping areas when customers are shopping.

Jerome Library

The chiller system was replaced in the library, which was a $700,000 project.


Rodgers Quad has been recarpeted, in addition to tunnel work done around the building, which led to new sidewalks.


Saddlemire deconstruction should be completed by the second week of September to make way for the Wolfe Center for the Arts. Ridge Street will be closed from Mercer Road to Willard Drive at the end of the project. Designs for the Wolfe Center are complete.

Health Center

A firm has been identified to design a parking garage behind the HealthCenter. Construction won’t begin for at least a year and a half.

Designs are in progress for the addition to the Health Center.

Harshman Quad

The new courtyards are complete at Harshman Quad.

Sebo Athletic Center

The Sebo Athletic Center, which is the new addition to the Doyt Perry Football Stadium will be dedicated at the first home football game on Sept. 22. In two weeks, the contractors should be gone from the facility, which has been operational since the end of May.

Doyt Perry Stadium: Field turf was installed on the football stadium field in place of grass.

Track: The track will be resurfaced later this fall, with a mid-September completion.

Tennis Courts: Eight new tennis courts were built between the baseball and softball fields. One more coat of court sealer is necessary, which will be completed on Aug. 31.


Campus: A natural gas line has been added to campus, which will provide the University the opportunity to negotiate directly with gas suppliers to save money when purchasing gas.

Architecture Program: A building at 400 Poe Road was purchased to house the University’s architecture program, which was relocated from Saddlemire.
