  • Great school, but doesn't do much for transfer students. Dorming is very hit or miss. But the campus and most of the classes are excellent.…

    I have got involved in campus activities and met other students in my classes which have made my experience enjoyable. Because BSU has a large commuter population, many students come here only for their education. If a person wants to be involved here, it is easy and I guarantee it will drastically improve your overall college experience at this university.

    It's really not a bad place to be, state school and all, people are generally likeable and there's usually a whole bunch to do and get involved with. I offer one warning though: Weekends. Since nearly half of the student body is commuters, and the other half (rough estimates) live relatively close to BSU, when Friday afternoon rolls around, the campus is usually deserted. Only for a few weekends (Homecoming, Finals Week) is civilization evident at Bridgewater.

    I have met people from all walks of life, and I have so many new friends that are truly deserving of my respect. Some professors are quite friendly, and I have newfound respect for many subject areas I had never truly liked.

    I love Bridgewater. I enjoying being there so much. I live on campus and there is always something to do. A basketball game to go to, dances, speakers, comedians, concerts by students and even karaoke nights. Or if you just want to relax and do your home work the dorms are great and quite and easy to get your work done, if you dont feel like going to the library. I love how there are so many people to met and new friendship you find. Bridgewater is a positive atmosphere.
