Congratulations to National Merit Scholarship Semi Finalist

Theodore Roosevelt High School is pleased to announce that early graduate Benjamin Mudrak is a semi-finalist in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program.  Ben is the son of  Pam Mudrak of Kent.  He is one of 16,000 semi finalists who have qualified to continue in the competition for Merit Scholarship Awards, worth more than $30 million, to be offered next spring.  He is designated from some 1.5 million National Merit Program entrants in nearly 21,000 high schools nationally.

Approximately 15,000 Semifinalists will advance to the Finalist level and it is from this group that all Merit Scholarship winners will be chosen.  Merit Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies, without regard to gender, race, ethnic origin or religious preference.

BGSU college visits

BGSU knows it’s not one-size-fits-all because every student has different needs. Therefore, we are providing a variety of resources to help navigate this year, and we hope one of these offerings is beneficial.

In-person visits

Our in-person visits are small and personalized with top safety and cleaning practices in place, per our Chief Health Officer Ben Batey. Any students interested in coming on campus reach out to choosebgsu@bgsu.edu for reservation information. The majority of the visits include a presentation and campus tour, but some days are tours only. Starting a conversation with Admissions is the best way for a student to know what would suit them.

Virtual events

We continue to offer an array of virtual sessions on a large range of topics that we hope your students will consider:

• Admissions Information Session and Q&A (highly recommended for a first-time virtual visitor)
• BGSU Application Workshop: Walk through the BGSU Application with Us
• Scholarship Opportunities for First-Year Students
• Life as a Falcon: Current Student Panel
• Academic Information Sessions: Learn more about majors & programs

Large college fairs

Finally, BGSU continues to be represented at a variety of large college fairs this fall, the majority of which are online. For a full list of where BG will be this fall, please refer your students to this guide.
