Bridgewater State University is a great less expensive option for students. However, if you plan to go to a graduates program BSU’s education is looked down upon, making it difficult to get into most higher level education colleges. The campus is nice, with many stores and places to eat near by. They offer different transportation options such as the train, bus, and shuttle. The school is very diverse with professors of different ethnicities as well as students from all different backgrounds. Lastly, the classes are fair and you can adapt your schedule to your life whether you have work, kids, or just like your schedule to be a certain way there are many different time slots of classes.
I am not yet a student, I just got accepted into Bridgewater State University and have only seen the campus once but based on other people's reviews and my own small experience, I think it's a pretty good and huge college. I've heard good and bad things but I think it'll be worth it.
This was my first choice when I applied/was accepted by 3 other schools that happened to be further away. BSU is close to many local shops, restaurants, and more. On campus, events are always happening and there’s always someone there when you need help or have questions! #BSU
I have been a graduate business student at Bridgewater State University for 1 Semester and have enjoyed my short time with the school. I appreciate the small class size that has allowed me to get to know my professors with ease. I like that they are the ones answering my questions about the documents that they will be grading so I know what to expect. The accessibility to the professors has allowed me to become more comfortable in the learning environment and allows them to show an interest in their students. They can handle who may need more help and recognize the top students. I have taken classes with hundreds of students at other universities and I know that BSU’s style of teaching is a good learning style that works for me.
The dining hall food on campus is average to above average but could always be improved. The campus is nice and has plenty of organizations to get involved in. Bridgewater is a diverse area and school. If you have a certain interest or group that you are seeking out, there is a good chance Bridgewater already has something involving it. It is convenient that the school is located on a commuter line and near a main highway between Cape Cod and Boston. There is plenty to do within driving distance during down time when not studying.
I also like that Bridgewater is in a relatively affordable location compared to many other towns and cities in Massachusetts. The classes are competitively priced, and I am grateful for the opportunity to go back to school to work towards a graduate degree. A college degree is what you make of it and I feel that BSU will give one that opportunity.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Bridgewater State University is 80%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Make sure they like the atmosphere surrounding the college because it is not only the academic purpose of choosing the college. You will need to enjoy yourself socially as well or you will not be happy and perhaps may hate college.
There is nothing wrong about Bridgewater State College academically, but being a commuter, there are not enough commuter parking lots available to the students, for it being a largely commuter based school.
Fun, friendly, helpful, sometimes offbeat and nutty.
The school ihas gone under renovations so many buildings are brand new.
Any person that wants a degree that isn't for teaching. The teaching program here is great, but all the other programs are left behind. Definitely do not come here if you are an art or music major.
Bridgwater State College is unique in its synthesis of in-class and on-line learning. It offers a great website allowing students to find out what is going on every day on campus, where to look for scholarships, and unique and fun opportunites. Additionally, there is a great mix of students from race, nationality, religion, age, and so on.
You should attend this school if you plan on majorinng in education(very good education department), the art program is big too.
I brag about how small our class sizes are. I enjoy being able to have class discussions and not big lectures. The professors here are very personable and help you with everything that you need. I feel as if they look at each student individually, and not as a number like they would at large universities.
I considered the over all learning experience to be the best at my school. The teachers really know the subject that they are teaching. Also the students there are great.
The education program.
The most frustrating thing about the school that I attend is when all my professors assign tests and papers at the same time. It gets pretty stressful.
I wish I had taken less science courses during the first semester as I had been out of school for a long time. I also wasn't initially very comfortable going to the achievement center to ask for help. I should have focused on a math course with some basic electives for the first semester until I became more comfortable with the requirments of the classes.
Well it is a good stereotype ( if there are any good ones). My school is considered as one of the best schools that train teachers in general. Therefore, many students are Education majors ( early childhood, secondary Ed, special ed etc.) so when a student meets someone who is not an education major it is pretty surprising.
Classes are small and professors take time to get to know you. Many of them take time to help you. Most of the teachers I had care about what they do and about their students. One of my teachers even introduced me to another teacher that literally saved my academic career countless times.
The most popular activities are open poetry nights, off campus events and socials, on campus dances, the Multicultural organizations and LGBT groups as well
if you want a school who has great administration and great teachers, this is the place to choose!
A typical weekend would involve either hanging out with friends, going to the local plaza or attending an event hosted by the school or on campus clubs/ organizations. No dull moment when you look for opportunities.
The professors are as concerned with your education as much as you are. In saying that if you express care for your academics and come to office hours as well as communicate with them, they assist as much as they professionally can. They assist those who are not afraid to say they need guidance.
Big Sociology fan as well as LGBT studies. So Really any Social Science classes are recommended because you are not only learning on an educational basis but on a social/ moral basis as well. Internally you grow ass a more conscious individual.
