Incoming student veterans at Bowling Green State University can arrive on campus confident in the knowledge that fellow student veterans will be on hand to help them navigate the transition to college life.
BGSU is one of just three schools nationwide participating in a pilot program administered by the Veterans Administration called PAVE (Peer Advisors for Veterans Education).
PAVE is a peer support program that connects incoming student veterans with student veterans already on campus. PAVE peer advisers can help identify any challenges that student veterans are facing and help locate appropriate resources on or off campus. They provide ongoing support to help student veterans meet academic and personal goals.
According to Barbara Henry, assistant vice president for Nontraditional and Transfer Student Services, the VA chose BGSU for its excellent reputation in assisting student veterans. The university is recognized yearly in Military Times Magazine as one of its "Best for Vets."

Wood County Hospital has withdrawn its request to rezone its 37.3-acre property on West Wooster Street and Conneaut Avenue.
As a result, the public hearing on the rezoning scheduled for Monday night by Bowling Green City Council has been canceled.
The withdrawal and cancelation were announced in an email from the clerk of city council sent just after 8 p.m. Thursday.
The hospital was seeking rezoning from S-3, planned institutional, to I-1, institutional. Hospital officials said the change would remove months from the planning process and allow the hospital to better respond to changing needs.
"We really desire to have a little bit more efficiency and a less cumbersome process," Wood County Hospital President Stan Korducki told the BG Planning Commission during its Feb. 5 public hearing.
The commission heard positive comments from some residents and concerns from others who were worried about the public losing the ability to be heard regarding matters going on in their neighborhoods.
Wendy Manning, of West Wooster Street, said the hospital has been "a great neighbor" but added "if there's a change in the ownership or the leadership to the hospital I think it's important for the community to be involved in hospital development."

Sherron Watkins landed on the cover of Time magazine, got up close and personal with a bunch of U.S. Congressmen, and was lauded by Barbara Walters as one of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2002.
On the other hand she lost not just a dream job, and most of her retirement savings along with it, but ultimately an entire career.
The "whistleblower of Enron" gave the keynote address for the Bowling Green State University College of Business' Women in Leadership conference Thursday. This year's theme: "Women and Ethics in the Workplace."
The collapse of Houston-based energy and commodities giant Enron was a corporate swindle of a magnitude almost defying belief.
Prior to joining Enron, Watkins, who had a B.S. in Accounting, worked in New York City, part of the time for accounting giant Arthur Andersen.

The Maumee and Portage rivers have gone into flood stage following Thursday's rainstorms. However, major flooding issues are not expected along either waterway based on current forecasts.
A flood warning was issued Thursday night by the National Weather Service for the Maumee River near Grand Rapids, according to a message issued just after 11 p.m. by the Wood County Sheriff's Office.
"The river's going to go into minor flood stage," said Wood County Emergency Management Director Brad Gilbert this morning, "so it's pretty much low-lying areas that usually get it. No structures impacted."
The original flood warning forecasted the river could rise above flood stage to 17.9 feet by Saturday evening with additional rises possible.
However, Gilbert said that as of this morning "they're showing it cresting about 17.5, which would put it into the moderate category. That would be probably Saturday night." 
Unlike others along the Maumee River, the river gauge at Grand Rapids must be read manually, and the depth called in by phone. The last reading was at 2 p.m. on Thursday, at 5.05 feet, he said. However, it's estimated that the river is sitting at 11 feet this morning.
