    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 […]

Why homecoming court?

Why Homecoming Court? BGSU has been a tremendous blessing in my life. I am very thankful for the friendships I have been able to form over the course of my time here. Moreover, my involvements, especially my work as a Student Leadership Assistant (SLA), have afforded me the opportunity to grow and help others due the same. I truly believe there is something for everyone at BGSU. We just need to take the time to explore what that is and pursue it when we find it. My hope is that all who visit or attend this institution recognize the great community we have here and that is something special to be a part of the “falcon family.”
