What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a current student at Bridgewater College. Altogether, it is a wonderful school with great professors, ​an amazing surrounding community, and students who truly care for each other. It has its problems, just as any school does. I am very glad that I have made my home hear as an Eagle.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A welcoming atmosphere is what you will receive when stepping on the Bridgewater campus with a whole ceremony dedicated to you on starting your journey at Bridgewater. The drums from the band will play, and the upperclassmen will cheer you on. Seeing faces you recognize both in class and out of class is so reassuring to my introverted self. Bridgewater cares about students making lifelong relationships with others with a smaller campus and class size and the available clubs to participate in. The college also gives everyone the opportunity to find what they are good at through liberal arts education. Usually in big universities, each field of study is separated from the others and doesn’t give students much opportunity to make friends, but as a student at Bridgewater, I can tell you that despite major, everyone is close to one another. Bridgewater is a community that I'm glad to be part of. As a shy person, I never thought that I would take part in clubs or events. I remember back when I was a freshman in college, our mentors made us play a relay game with various steps that involved putting on an extra layer of clothes under the sun's rays. My old self would've said no to the idea of playing the game to avoid embarrassment. But then that same day, I met students from my class that I know will be there for me even when we graduate. I must admit that being a commuter makes it much harder to participate in every activity or event, but I try to make the most of the events that I do go to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion, Bridgewater College is a very average school. There is nothing that particular sticks out and makes you want to delve in more. There is a big transfer rate and I am currently thinking about transferring myself. It does not fit my taste as it is in the country side with very little to do. Activity wise, nothing really happens on and off campus. It is quiet and extremely boring. Most students just stay in their dorms. The food is alright but sometimes, it is awful; pizza is burnt, meat is raw, fish too salty, and et cetera. I wish they'd do a little better with that. The way they described the dining on the official Bridgewater College website is very misleading. The education there is nothing spectacular and there are a bunch of useless classes that, of course, no one wants to take. The only really good thing about this college is that the classes are very small and the professors are always welcoming and always available and ready to assist you. Overall, I give my current college a five out of a possible ten.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Since I did not plan on graduating early, college was not in my mind at the moment, but once graduating in 2019 instead of 2020 became real, Bridgewater was a miracle. They offered me scholarship money to help make attending there affordable since this was a last minute thing. They have made everything a breeze from orientation to move in day. Whenever I have questions, I call and I’m always given the best service.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Nice southern type school, all the kids I met were nice and friendly, Bridgewater wants me to play football for them, the treated me well, I ate well, and enjoyed the college tour. Met with a diversity counselor who encouraged me to submit my applications, that might get other blacks interested. I like the small college feel, its not to crowded. I also like being able to bring my own car

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bridgewater is a quality small school. There are flaws with the administration and housing situations but only the most involved will every realize that. Overall the food is average at best but it is an unlimited meal plan for a fair price so it is hard to complain. There are also a great deal of solid dining options around the college, especially because we are only 20 minuted from JMU. If you are looking for an affordable small school environment, then Bridgewater is where you want to be. The professors are by far the best aspect of this school and will make your experience 10x better once you find our passion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bridgewater College is a very small school and has a super close community, it like a big family and i always feel safe. With Bridgewater being so small class sizes are perfect and you get to know your professors. Having the ability to be close with the staff at Bridgewater is so benifical to students in many different ways.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Love the school and campus! Located in a quiet area of Virginia with lots to do. Love the Mountain views! The school has a great small town atmosphere and provides great culture. Dorm life is your college standard with several students to a room. Class size is good and more that ample availability of staff to help with any situation you may encounter.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this college so much because of the diversity. There are so many different people from different backgrounds and most of the people here are so nice. I feel safe on this campus as well because the town has one of the lowest crime rates in Virginia. Overall, this is my favorite place to be.
