BGSU celebrating homecoming this weekend

Bowling Green State University will celebrate Homecoming 2018 this weekend, with a full range of events. The parade steps off at 5:30 p.m. today (Friday, Oct. 12), and will follow a different route this year, with rolling street closures as it moves along. The parade will travel from Mercer Drive at East Wooster Street, down Wooster to Thurstin Avenue, ending in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union lot with the Taste of BG food trucks.

A Saturday morning highlight is the groundbreaking for the new Robert W. and Patricia A. Maurer Center at the former Hanna Hall. Everyone is invited to celebrate the future home of the College of Business, beginning at 10 a.m. on the lawn at the west side of the building.

Falcon Football kicks off against Western Michigan at 3 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 13) in Doyt Perry Stadium. BGSU Firelands, which celebrated student homecoming Oct. 10, will have a tent at Falcon Tailgate Park, which opens at noon.
