BGSU welcomes thousands for President’s Day open house | Events
BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) – While most college students have the day off in observance of President’s Day, classes and Bowling Green State University were in session Monday to show off for perspective students.
The university says more than 3,000 people from 19 different states descended on the campus throughout the day. Perspective students will have a chance to tour the campus, sit in on classes and speak to academic advisors.
“They have a lot of different majors to offer, and just a bigger, new experience for me because my school is very small. So I figured because I was undecided it would be good to be able to experience all the different aspects of their education and everything,” said Leah Binsack of Fremont, a perspective BGSU student.
School officials say they expect a large freshmen class in the fall despite plans to lose 100 professors and possible state cuts of as much as $3 million.
“Our enrollment looks extremely strong for next year; we’re delighted with where we’re at,” said Director of Admissions Gary Sweegan. “You’ll see a significant increase in freshmen quality for the fall of 13.”
Sweegan says the school expects to enroll 4,200 freshmen in the fall.
