Safe surroundings on campus, everything is easy to find and absolutely everyone is very helpful if you need assistance. I love the variety of different events always going on. There is always something to do and be involved in.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2007

Overall Rating

- BG is small enough that everytime you walk around campus you see someone you know, but big enough that you meet new people everyday. - One of THE BIGGEST STEREOTYPES for BG is the thought that there are STDs floating around the school. That is a total misconception and false. There are no more STDs at BG than any other college. BG became known for that because in the 90's, BG was ranked first in the sdtate of Ohio. Loooonng time ago,.,.....- I joined a fraternity and had a great experience. However, greek life is not essential in order to have an active social life. I had many friends who were non-greek.- Freshamn year, try to get in Mac (McDonald Hall). Mac is by far the best Freshman dorm.- Skybar is the best bar for underagers- There are tons of great off-campus apartments to live in after freshman year
