Many alumni met their soul mate while attending BGSU or married someone who also had earned a degree from the University. A name was eventually derived for those couples who married where both individuals had BGSU degrees -- Falcon Flames. As of December 2009, there were 10,565 BGSU Falcon Flame couples living throughout the world. This translates to 21,130 students meeting their future spouse while on campus or after graduation.
The group is formally recognized as an alumni society through the BGSU Alumni Association.
If you are a Falcon Flame, we welcome you to share your story and pictures for this special exhibit that is part of Centennial Memories. Upload your stories, photos, videos and audio clips on our special Falcon Flames page.
