Student Leadership & Civic Engagement
C. Raymond Marvin Center for Student Leadership and Civic Engagement

Student Leadership and Civic Engagement 

The C. Raymond Marvin Center for Student Leadership and Civic Engagement helps students develop lifelong leadership skills, learn to lead with integrity and empower others to get involved. Support for the center ensures signature leadership training opportunities are available to help students’ network, broaden their reach, excel in their missions, and create lasting positive change in the world. 

The Sidney A. Ribeau President's Leadership Academy 

Scholars in the Sidney A. Ribeau President’s Leadership Academy learn and develop their leadership skills through a comprehensive leadership curriculum grounded in the ideals of servant leadership. Your support provides PLA scholars with meaningful and purposeful experiences throughout their four years as they learn and enact their leadership skills.

Freddie and Frieda Support Fund 

For 74 years, our mascots have represented the pride and dedication our Falcon family shares for Bowling Green State University. Freddie and Frieda Falcon have become a significant part of campus life and spirit of BGSU. The time commitment often exceeds 20 hours a week on top of being a full-time student. The students who serve as Freddie and Frieda do so as volunteers who have a passion for BGSU and want to meaningfully give back. They are not paid and do it for the love of their university. Often the students in these roles are unable to work a part time job due to the time involved serving as a mascot. Supporting the Freddie and Frieda Support Fund builds scholarship dollars to relieve the financial stress of being a mascot and full-time student.  This year, our mascots have spent over 1,300 hours engaging with our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and BG community and have attended almost 400 events.  


The students who serve the BGSU community through this group are dedicated and passionate Falcons. With a three-year commitment, much of their student experience happens in secret behind a mask. As we reflect on all SICSIC has done to strengthen BGSU, the impact has been tremendous. Today, on BGSU One Day, make a gift to impact those students behind the mask!

Cheerleading & Dance Team Fund

BGSU's Cheer and Dance teams are true ambassadors of the BGSU spirit. They strive to uphold, reflect, and project the goals and ideals of the University, to inspire fans through spirit, leadership, and character and to strive to be the best possible individuals, team and Falcons.
