Bridgewater College is an independent, private liberal arts college founded in 1880. Located in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, Bridgewater has a total enrollment of 1,800 students and offers more than 60 majors and minors, along with several master’s degree programs.
The student experience at Bridgewater is shaped and defined by connections—between students faculty, alumni, and community members—and with new ideas and the wider world. Bridgewater’s commitment to building connections for life allows students more opportunities to flourish than they might have elsewhere—more opportunities to participate in sports, music, clubs and organizations; to exercise leadership; and to develop and achieve their potential as they are mentored by the teacher-scholars that make up the faculty.
With 80 clubs and organizations, everyone has an opportunity to be involved on campus, and almost a third of the student body participates in intercollegiate athletics at the NCAA Division III level.
