Save the Popular Culture Building

To be delivered to Mary Ellen Mazey, President, Bowling Green State University

Petition Statement

Don't tear down the historically significant and distinctive Popular Culture Building, home to Bowling Green State University's internationally recognized Popular Culture Program.
There are currently 2,162 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

What makes a university special? The students and faculty, of course -- but also the programs and places that make an institution of higher learning truly special.

Bowling Green State University is fortunate to have an internationally recognized Popular Culture Program that is housed in a very special (and appropriate) building -- a Montgomery Ward catalog house, known as a Wardway kit house, that was the home of several presidents before Pop Culture took up residency there in the 1970s.

The Popular Culture Building is one of the last Wardway kit houses to be constructed, and lovers of both history and pop culture can appreciate what it says about small-town living in the years before the Depression. No one who understands the building's history would want to lose a treasure like this; please sign this petition to tell the BGSU administration that they must not raze the Popular Culture Building, a distinctive and significant part of BGSU's culture.
