Battle of the Decades (2000-2009)
Life at BGSU in the 2000s
As a student at BGSU in the 2000s, you probably remember playing under the lights on the intramural field, when ESPN rolled into town for College Game Day, participating in the BETA 500, witnessing the opening of the Bowen-Thompson Student Union, visiting the now-torn-down Saddlemire Student Services building, lunching at the ‘Dial, cheering on the Falcon volleyball and basketball teams at Anderson Arena and ordering stuffed breadsticks at least once a week.
While we each had unique experiences at BGSU, we are united as graduates from the 2000s 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 2000s 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.
