Experiential Learning

Bowling Green State University is a public university with the special obligation to create public good. We best accomplish this mission by preparing our students to live meaningful and productive lives. Without a doubt, our students face a very complex world and work environment. To ensure each of them is positioned for success, we must target our learning outcomes to be focused not only on knowing, but also on doing.  

With more than 20,000 students, we must increase accessibility so these high-impact practices can be for all, not just the few. Please consider a gift to one of these priorities for BGSU One Day.

Thompson Working Families Scholarship

This scholarship program is designed to help families that may struggle with the cost of higher education by providing valuable need-based funding for students to have access to and achieve their college education.

The William and Joan Downing Military and Veteran Center

Located within the Nontraditional and Military Student Services office, the center has computer stations and free printing. The students greatly appreciate the free coffee, bottled water and variety of snacks that keep them going throughout the day and into the evening. The coffee, water and snacks are funded through your generous support. 

Cedar Fair Resort and Attraction Management

BGSU offers the only resort and attraction management degree embedded in a theme park. This innovative partnership provides graduates with leadership opportunities in the resort and attraction management industry. Students enrolling in the RAAM program can earn a full-tuition, two-year scholarship through support from this fund.

Student Emergency Fund

In 2020, this fund became a lifeline for students amid the COVID-19 crisis as many students lost jobs or faced other financial hardships. This aid helped students pay their rent and utilities, buy food and maintain internet access for remote learning. Help BGSU students experiencing hardship stay on track to graduate today by making a gift to the Student Emergency Fund.
