Our campus is on a very large hill. We made it to the Sweet 16 in 2008. Our student body is pretty laid back.

Kymberly

I believe that my school is best known for the small community that it is in and the beautiful campus. The town of Bowling Green is extremely suppportive and involved regardless of the size of the university. It is a school that does not have huge enrollment numbers so that the students are just another check number written to the school, but individual people with thoughts and ideas. The entire town is extremely supportive of the college students. The campus is simply lovely. Not spread on hundreds of acres, but settled closely together like a community in itself.
