Bridgewater State has given me many different opportunities to connect with other students on campus. It has given me the opportunity to continue dancing and finding myself. it has given me life long friendships. It is a safe and welcoming environment, where everyone says hi to others. The staff and faculity are always willing to help you.
Really great professors and a beautiful campus. Its really easy to get help whether its with financial aid, transcripts, housing, or academics.
It is a good school and has a very welcoming feel and I have met some amazing friends. There are lots of things to do on campus to be involved. On the weekends though the campus is pretty much dead since a lot of people go home and the dining halls always have weird hours.

Bridgewater was awful. The advisers truly don't care about you. There's nothing to do in the area. There's never any food, healthy food open. It always smells like weed. Police live on campus so good luck with parties. Avoid this school at all costs. You may think the finaid is good but as soon as you decide to go there they'll change it.
I recently transferred here and I am pleasantly surprised with my experience. I lived in the area and always said I would never go there but the education I am receiving is really great. The professors really want you to succeed but they also know how to challenge you. I am excited to see how my next few years play out and where the experience takes me .
I enjoy going here very much. The classes are smaller so you get the attention you deserve. There are many resources available to help you keep your grades up (Tutoring, academic coaching, writing center). The environment is very friendly, and the food is good!
I like how Bridgewater Stae is dedicated to offering many opportunities to students of all demographics and statuses. There are people from all over who attend BSU, who are passionate to work to be better, and many professors work to see their students strive for greatness. One thing that can be improved at BSU, is their academic advising. I was a transfer student and it took a month and a half into the semester for me to receive advisors for both my majors. I believe advising should be a priority and be more individualized.
I've overall had a good experience at Bridgewater, but the consistently increasing tuition and fees have been annoying-- hopefully it's stopped. I've had some bad professors but a LOT of good ones. I'm an art major, and I've enjoyed the program, professors, and other students.
School is diverse and has offerings for everyone. Love the town feeling with oppurtunity to jump on the (on campus) train into Boston!
I enjoy the awareness of the need for diversity on campus. I also enjoy that the general faculty seems to understand that it is important to go a step further and be inclusive of varying identities rather than just representative.
Bridgewater State University granted me a great college experience as a two sport collegiate athlete and student. The campus is beautiful and it's open to endless possibilities. I recommend BSU to any graduating high school senior or transfer student as it's affordable, beautiful, location is great, and overall competitive in the classroom as well.
This school is perfect. It is small so it is easy to get to know where all the buildings are and also the classrooms are just the right size; meaning we get to interact more with the professor and they get to know us more, since the class capacity it is roughly about 30 students. I think it is just right.
Bridgewater State University is a great school, especially for the money. When I was deciding where to attend college as a senior in high school, I weighed all of my options. I compared the amount of money I would need to go into debt at each school and realized I could go to Bridgewater for all four years what one year at some schools was going to cost me. Not wanting to be thousands of dollars in debt made choosing Bridgewater a little easier for me.
The honors program at the school allows for smaller class sizes which is great! Although even my non honors classes so far have had small numbers. Bridgewater isn’t a huge school, but it’s also not small, for me it was the perfect size!
I love the support from all the staff and the campus is huge, but beautiful. The dorm rooms have no air conditioning and my room gets to as high as 90 degrees even with 2 fans in my room.
This school is a typical state school. The campus is smaller in size but the fellow students and experiences available are great. I have made a second home here and a second family. I just wish there was more parking for commuters.
It’s ok, should have more consideration for students with learning disabilities. First year they called out the students with disabilities to come to another room. As if someone wants to identify to that infront of people they don’t know. As a student with a disability they didn’t seek me out the entire semester even though I provided all my neurological testing. I was finally made aware of the accommodations opportunities during my first semester. The book buying is a numbers money game. They change books up for the same class just so we can not sell our text books to each other and the book store makes money
In the beginning of my time at Bridgewater State University I wasn't really sure if it was going to be the best fit for me. As some time passed and i got to meet new people who connected me to things around campus. One of those things was my work study which helped me really get involved around campus. once i got to explore the campus more i realized it wasn't as bad as i thought it was, i just needed to get out of my room and actually take the time to get to know the campus. Once I did that i learned that Bridgewater was the right fit for me.

I loved going to BSU! I was able to complete my Bachelor's in Psychology while working full time because of their flexible class hours and online availability.
Affordable for in-state tuition. Offers a wide variety of courses and majors. Don't go here if you have to pay out of state because it won't be worth it.
Bridgewater State has really made it such a peaceful and cute place to be. I love it and the energy it brings me, I have work there through the week! I love taking pictures of cool things around the school and the architecture and the nature surrounding it!
