  • Lying in Memoir
    Lauren Slater crafts diligent, depictive metaphors in narrative, and I hate her writing, simultaneously. Should there be lying in memoir? In her book, Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir (2000), Slater crafts lies from epilepsy to nunneries to doctor visits and proposed peer reviewed theses to AA meetings. However, within these lies, she allows us to question […]
  • Interview with George Looney
    By Merrick Glass Last week, BGSU hosted the visiting author, George Looney, and I had the great opportunity to speak with him! Here is the Q&A I shared with him from the BFA and MFA experience to his achievements, advice, and favorite writers. As I read from the Cider Press Review, I saw that 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.’

‘lt;b’gt;Dining Hall Changes’lt;/b’gt;

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.

‘lt;b’gt;Jerome Library’lt;/b’gt;

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.

‘lt;b’gt;Health Center’lt;/b’gt;

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.

‘lt;b’gt;Harshman Quad’lt;/b’gt;

The new courtyards are complete at Harshman Quad.

‘lt;b’gt;Sebo Athletic Center’lt;/b’gt;

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.

‘lt;b’gt;Doyt Perry Stadium:’lt;/b’gt; Field turf was installed on the football stadium field in place of grass.

‘lt;b’gt;Track:’lt;/b’gt; The track will be resurfaced later this fall, with a mid-September completion.

‘lt;b’gt;Tennis Courts:’lt;/b’gt; 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.

‘lt;b’gt;OTHER CHANGES ON CAMPUS’lt;/b’gt;

‘lt;b’gt;Campus’lt;/b’gt;: 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.

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