Bell ringing

Little Red Schoolhouse

The College of Education and Human Development welcomes incoming students with a bell-ringing at the Little Red School House, near the college. 

The Little Red School House sits at the center of campus to remind us that, at its heart, BGSU continues to honor our heritage as a normal school: an institution to train teachers by educating them in the norms of pedagogy and curriculum.

The Little Red School House was built in Norwalk in 1875. It moved to BGSU 100 years later, with the help of David G. Elsass, Ph.D., who was dean of the College of Education (as it was called during his tenure).

Bowling Green State University (BGSU) has built their website around the Standards of the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) 5 and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).  The website was built in compliance with the accessibility standards established by section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and detailed in section 1194.22 of the Code of Federal Regulations, “Web-based intranet and internet information and applications” (https://www.section508.gov/).

BGSU utilizes many web masters across campus to maintain all of its web properties.  Keeping the BGSU website in compliance with section 508 is a joint effort between Accessibility Services, Marketing and Communications and Information Technology Services.  If any page is discovered to be inaccessible, please report it using the above link and we will ensure that the issue is addressed.
