Bridgewater College Reviews
Rating 3.55 out of 5 443 reviews
There's not much to do on campus since it is small, and only about 2000 students, but if you have a car you can travel to Harrisonburg and there are many restaurants and shops.
When I went to visit a few times before fully putting in my deposit, I fell in love with the student life and the campus. I found out that there are so many amazing resources to help with school and to transition into college. The campus is amazing and everything that I was looking for. I also believe that the population is the perfect size, for I was originally aspiring to go to a smaller college.
Overall, everything is nice. The classrooms are small with roughly 20 kids per class, making professors more likely to actually engage with you and know you on a first name basis. There are many clubs that are including and everyone belongs. Everyone on campus is really nice and there are many resources available to students. Bridgewater is a dry campus (no alcohol or tobacco products) but just 10 minutes away is James Madison University and every weekend students from Bridgewater go there for parties.
The professors are very kind, since the classes are smaller you get more out of class and your relationships with classmates are easier to make. They always have activities and things going on around campus and jmu is nearby so you can get food delivered or go out anytime!
I’ve been at Bridgewater College for two years now and i’ve have established a tight circle of friends. It was always hard for me to start new connections with people, but here it came easy. My 4 friends, make me feel like i’ve known them outside of school and we all clicked almost instantly. I just met them this year and it’s astonishing.
Bridgewater is a great school for students who need extra help and enjoy getting to know their professors. It is student oriented and very welcoming. there are many helpful resources within the school community and it is very much like a small family.
Bridgewater College is great… for a VERY specific person. It is very small, and in a small quiet little town. There isn’t a lot to do on weekends and many students go home, it’s quite a boring place generally. Has a strong community vibe to it though. If you like small towns you’ll probably like it here.
The professors are great most of the time. you will build significant connections with some of them and they are willing to help with anything you might need. You can really find your people here!
This is an amazing school. I doubted that i’d like a small school but as soon as I came to Bridgewater I fell in love. Other than the obvious renovations needed to the dorm rooms, the education and care the professors show to their students is unmatchable. It is the most crucial part of a college education and Bridgewater nails it.
I love the small class sizes and the professors! I also really love the way that they are such a tight community and really are able to include everybody in things like events.
Cheap...you get what you pay for. Professors are nice enough but once you get here you can't leave until you graduate. No hope of transferring credits out without loosing them. Also forget about getting a place of your own. Unless you live with a guardian you are not allowed to move off campus until you graduate.
I love the classes and teachers, but the food at the KCC could be greatly improved. I love how easy it is to make friends within the dorms and I am glad I get to live in the dorms. I think most of the freshman dorms need to have repairs made because students will want to take care of them, if there is something to take care of.
I really like the community of Bridgewater. I also really like all the professors that I have interacted with. However, the cleaning and grounds staff need improvement. The food is iffy. Also the college is consistently changing things for the worse. Like hours for the dining hall, and cutting a lot of good professors and leaving the bad ones. They also keep raising tuition while other colleges are lowering it.
Bridgewater has fluffy values on the outside, but inside campus, they do not uphold all their values.
Well, the classes are fine food is bad and making friends is hard campus is very clickish. Also some professors seem to force their views on you and try to tell you that you were brainwashed as a child. and that you shouldn’t believe what you do.
I did not have any online experiences with Bridgewater College. I did not attend the school while the pandemic was occurring.
It was okay. The school overall did not have many opportunities to help prepare students who wanted to go to graduate school for healthcare. The school is very small and had drama present every day you are there. There were some professors who really want to see you succeed and are great mentors. Overall not really a great experience.
It was not terrible but the professors need to learn how to use ZOOM. But I only have one class online so I am not too worried about it now. Most of the professors adapt pretty well while others are still struggling to teach through a screen.
This school is not meant for everyone because of its size but I like the small class sizes and the tight community. However, this school does get boring sometimes because of the small town vibe but overall it is what you make of it.
Only gave one because I can’t give 0 don’t go here please I’m begging you. Most of the teachers sucks, the coaches SUCK and the whole school over all is awful and evil.
Literally please go anywhere else theyre lying to you
