    BGSU Visit Tips:

    • If these dates don’t work with your schedule, an event has closed or you’re looking for something different, reach out to your transfer specialist. They’re ready to help find the visit that works best for you.
    • If you’re interested in a personalized experience, be sure to reach out to your transfer specialist at least 2 weeks in advance. Please note - personalized meetings and tours cannot be accommodated on Saturdays, holidays or on large visit days (like Presidents Day.)
    • General campus tours will include visits to our student recreation center, the student union, a traditional residence hall, the Maurer Center (home of the Schmidthorst College of Business and classrooms for students from any major), outdoor spaces and a general academic building.
    • General campus tours will take place, rain, shine, cold or snow. However, during the winter months, if the University is closed due to winter weather, visits will be cancelled and registrants will be notified. We recommend dressing for the weather and bringing a refillable water bottle.

    We can’t wait to host you on campus!  Contact the Office of Admissions at choosebgsu@bgsu.edu or 419-372-2478 if you have any questions.
