Welcome Message to Students

Welcome, Bowie State University Bulldogs:

It is with enthusiasm I welcome you back for another exciting year here at Bowie State University.  I hope you have taken some time to refresh and prepare for the upcoming demands of the 2010-2011 academic year.  The staff has worked assiduously in anticipation of your return, and we hope their efforts will have a positive impact as you continue your academic journey at BSU.

I also extend a warm welcome to new students.  Thank you for choosing Bowie State University.  Be assured that we stand ready to provide the student support services you will need to grow academically, socially, and personally.  In your scholarly pursuits, we encourage you to take full advantage of the resources that we are providing.

To all students, both undergraduate and graduate, we remind you that your success at BSU will not be based solely on what Bowie State University can deliver to you, but it will be based primarily on your commitment to take control of the learning opportunities afforded you at our great university.  So, as you begin the rigors of another year, we implore you to do the following:

  1. Get to know your professors and their expectations;
  2. Manage your time wisely;
  3. Meet your academic advisors and consult with them regularly;
  4. Employ effective study and research techniques; and most of all,
  5. Pursue your studies with "Bulldog" tenacity.

Best wishes for a successful year, and do not hesitate to seek our guidance should you need assistance in any way!

Sincerely,

Mickey L. Burnim
