Bridgewater State University Reviews
When I first learned I was going to Bridgewater State, I wasn’t the happiest. I couldn’t afford my top choice school, and I knew BSU didn’t specialize in my major of Political Science, as much as their Education and Science programs. However, after joining extracurricular groups, eventually becoming an executive board member of some; making the Dean’s List, and being offered competitive internship opportunities, I realized that it’s better to go to an average school and stand out than a more prestigious institution, where it’s harder to do so.
I've always felt completely comfortable walking from one side of campus to the other side at night by myself, and I think that speaks very loudly of the safety of our campus. You rarely will walk across campus without seeing a police officer on a bike, golf cart, car, or even a horse! It's been increasingly getting better with students who have been sexually assaulted, and it's great knowing that students are becoming more comfortable telling superiors about these things happening. Bridgewater has made incredible strides in preventing sexual assault on campus, and providing support for those who have been a victim.
I have recently completed my first semester at BSU. From what I can tell, this is 100% a "suitcase school". During the week, the campus has lived in, people are everywhere, events are taking place, and the dining halls are filled. But once the weekends hit, the dorm buildings are empty, and the weekend events rarely happen. Food is decent. The Residence Halls are nice from the four I've been in/ invited to. People here are friendly. And there is a commuter rail stop that leads into South Station, Boston. The train stop is right in the middle of campus.
