BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

This year's freshman class is unlike any other in the history of Bowling Green State University. They have the strongest academic background in the university's history.

Students are coming in with an average GPA of 3.3, and high ACT test scores. Nearly all 3,400 of them moved in today. About 14 percent of them are from out of state, others decided to transfer from what some may call elite universities.

"It just more of a friendly environment than Penn State was," said Gary Malveaux. "I really like it here. All the people seem so nice and welcoming."

This year's freshman class is also smaller than usual, to ensure student success.
