As a student at BGSU in the 2010s, you may remember welcoming the first events at the Stroh Center, playing sand volleyball outside of Offenhauer, painting “the rock,” having fun at “MAC beach,” and watching as campus transformed with new classroom buildings, residence halls and other state-of-the-art facilities.
While we each had unique experiences at BGSU, we are united as graduates from the 2010s 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 2010s 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.
