Opening Weekend is full of activities for students to participate in to acclimate being at college for the first time. 

According to BGSU’s website, “Opening Weekend is an opportunity for first-year students to continue exploring campus after their Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration visit and become better acquainted with their surroundings and their peers. It is an introduction to their first semester at BGSU as well as an opportunity to build school spirit and excitement.”

However, Opening Weekend would not go as smoothly as it does now without the help of Opening Weekend Group Leaders. According to BGSU’s website, “Opening Weekend Group Leaders play an integral role, ensuring first-year students have a smooth, enjoyable, and successful transition to BGSU.”

Below are a few OWGLs and their favorite memories of Opening Weekend from their freshman years.
