Bowling Green State University-Main Campus Top Questions

What are the academics like at your school?


Bowling Green has fairly good-sized classes, anywhere from my smallest class of 30 to my largest class of 150. This is compared to 350-500 per class at Ohio State. All of my professors know my name, but that is because I strive to make myself known. My favorite class is Japanese, simply because i love the language. My least favorit class is compute science however, because my professor is boring. He's the one i dislike the most. But 4 out of 5 of my teachers are good professors. My professors are busy, and i don't spend any time out of class with them. The syllabi are often changed to reflect the speed of the class as well, so the first syllabus you get won"t be final. BG is changing to a new education style based on what employers want next year, so the learning will be much more job-focused.


Academics at BGSU are fairly interactive. Class sizes are never too huge and professors are typically willing to spend extra time with you in order to get to know you as a student and help out with any issues you may be experiencing in their class. One of the best aspects is that it interactive, you get to be a part of your education rather than sitting and listening to a boring old man talk for an hour.
