Fairfield Inn & Suites - have not stayed here, but is a brand new building
Hampton Inn - we’ve stayed here a couple times, newer and still nice

There is a Meijer directly across I-75 from campus. Walmart is on the other side of town. If you follow the main roads, plan on it taking 15 minutes to get there. If you know side roads, you can get there in 5-7 minutes.
BGSU is in the Mid-American Conference, the same one as Western Michigan University. Total enrollment is under 20,000 students. The 95 year old Falcon Marching Band (FMB) has about 250 members under the direction of Dr. Michael King. The 2018 season will be his third season as their director. The FMB has a Jenison alumni. Our mellophone marcher that we referenced in our opening post has participated in the FMB all three years of college and will continue into his senior year. The marching skills and discipline learned during his time at Jenison has made him an example for less experienced marchers. Last year, the FMB performed at BOA Grand Nationals as an exhibition band. His experience with Jenison once again allowed him to guide and lead many fellow band members who had never experienced competitive band or performed at a venue like Lucas Oil. We, as parents, are grateful for the many great experiences provided our hometown marching band.
