As a student at BGSU in the 1990s, your memories probably include rushing outside for late-night fire alarms, the smell of popcorn filling the dorm hallways, watching the tricycle races, studying around-the-clock in the Business Administration Building, walking in 40 mph winds to work out at the SRC, sporting big hair, baggy tops and ripped jeans, eating the oversized pizza slices at Founders dining hall and cheering on our Falcons in the “House that Roars.”
While we each had unique experiences at BGSU, we are united as graduates from the 1990s decade. As alumni of the decade, we are inviting you to connect, or re-connect, with campus to provide even greater opportunities for our fellow Falcons. You can provide an immediate and lasting impact for students through scholarship and academic support, enriching student life, creating innovative learning spaces, and more.
And in the spirit of good, clean competition, your support also puts the 1990s decade one step closer to being crowned the champion of the “Battle of the Decades.” The winning decade will be recognized at a Homecoming celebration event based on highest alumni participation, measured through this “Falcon Funded” website. We will even have the opportunity to participate in a long-standing BGSU tradition – painting the spirit rock!
If you have never made a gift to BGSU, or it has been several years since your last gift, now is especially a great time to show your support for your alma mater and future generations of Falcons. An anonymous donor will make a $10 donation for each alumnus or alumna who makes a first time gift. Our students continue to shine here on campus, and through your generous support, they can continue to build on the legacy you left behind.

If 50 BGSU alumni each give $10, the collective impact of these gifts could provide a student books for a semester.
If 40 BGSU alumni each give $25, the collective impact of these gifts could provide $1,000 in funding for the more than 300 registered student organizations on campus.
If 30 BGSU alumni each give $100, the collective impact of these gifts could provide for nearly all of a student's meal plan for an entire academic year.
If 10 BGSU alumni each give $500, the collective impact of these gifts could provide for almost all of a student's tuition and fees for a semester.
If five BGSU alumni each give $1,000, the collective impact of these gifts could provide for nearly the entire cost of a student's residence hall room on campus for an academic year.
