BGSU Athletics sponsors 18 sports — seven men’s and 11 women’s — which compete for championships in the Mid-American Conference (MAC) and the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA). Our teams strive for success in competition, in the classroom and in the community.
BGSU Athletics has a strong championship tradition, but we are equally proud of our student-athletes’ accomplishments in the classroom. During the 2021 Fall term, our student-athletes achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.44 - the highest cumulative GPA ever for Falcon Athletics.
Your gift on BGSU One Day helps to ensure our student-athletes have the tools they need to be successful in all ways!
Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund
The Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund was created to provide the best possible athletic and academic opportunities for our 400+ student-athletes. When you invest in the Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund, you are helping us to create the future and continue the tradition of excellence for Falcon Athletics. Your gifts are imperative in allowing us to provide the resources necessary for our student-athletes to truly have a world-class experience.
Investments in the Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund have one over-arching purpose: to provide our student-athletes with the maximum amount of scholarship support allowed by the NCAA in every sport we sponsor. These scholarships allow BGSU to recruit, retain and graduate outstanding student-athletes to compete in the MAC and CCHA.
For athletes, there is no supplement for a healthy diet. Nutrition plays a vital role in athletic performance, general health, and preventing illness and injuries. It is important to recognize that there is no universal diet plan and each student-athlete requires an individualized approach when it comes to nutrition. The health and well-being of our student-athletes is of the utmost importance to BGSU Athletics, so we could use your assistance in providing our student-athletes with not just adequate, but the best possible nutrition. Support of this initiative helps provide protein shakes, smoothies, and snacks for pre and post workout along with education and direct guidance as it relates to meal planning.
Student-athletes have additional pressures to maintain their classwork and grades on top of practice and games, which may manifest as stress, eating disorders, burnout, or depression and anxiety. Supporting the Student-Athlete Support initiative will create opportunities for the Athletic Department to provide additional counseling and services geared to fit within our student-athletes’ schedules. Gifts to this initiative will be used to supplement the programs and hours available for mental health and wellness counselors to support our Falcon student-athletes.
Sports Medicine Technology
Technology in sport continues to evolve at a rapid pace. BGSU’s Department of Athletics seeks to provide the best medical and training services and facilities for our 400+ student-athletes.
