Beautiful campus. Son loved it. He will be happy in the fall. This University is small enough to make the transition smooth for incoming freshman.

Beautiful campus, especially in May before graduation. The red roses are in blossom to match the university's official color --- RED.

Strange to find my alma mater on TripAdvisor. Lovely school....campus is growing by leaps and bounds. With all the changes that the University is undergoing, the sky is the limit with this school.

The nicely landscaped hilltop campus offers beautiful viewsof the surrounding valley and downtown Bowling Green. It's a doable walk to and from downtown Bowling Green shops and restaurants as well.
