  • Most of the dorms on campus are decent. With the newer dorms being better, but they are also harder to get in to. The school is also building a brand…

    As far as college food goes BSU's is pretty standard. There are 5 places to eat on campus. Two are meal swipe buffet style, but you can use cash or dining dollars (comes on the meal plan), and two are cash/dining dollar only. Hardly any students go to the last one, it's like a restaurant style/buffet that uses dining dollars or cash. Only one is open late and its the only cash only one that is open all weekend. Sometimes it feels like the only food options are salads, healthy food, and processed/fast food, like a lot of schools I guess. There are also two Dunkins on campus and a Starbucks. The town has pizza, chinese, thai, sushi, froyo, sandwiches, diners, and two bars. There's a Roche Brothers very close by and SO many coffee places- Dunks, Honeydew, Marylou's, cafes. You don't always have to eat on campus!

    Five cafeterias in total, all offer similar tasting food, with the exception usually of one item or set of items that the other kitchens don't make. Nutritional value is generally between subpar and adequate. The breakfast items include brand name cereals along with delicious baked bagels, breads, and a nearby yogurt bar offers a few different flavors. Milk is always ice cold. Tasty omelets are made on select days with an assortment of diced foods that you can add. While breakfast generally stays the same, lunches, dinners, and suppers continuously rotate. I recommend future students to stand up for their health by encouraging the school to include mostly organic ingredients in their meals.

    I am a commuter and do not eat on campus, I cannot effectively comment on the food and dining on campus. There's lots of fast food right off campus, and tons of local pizza and sub places around though.

    The food is excellent, and a far improvement over the cafeteria food at high school, that food was garbage. Although it can be a little expensive (without meal plan) the portion size is perfect. There are so many options and three different places you can eat at that all serve different things.

    Food here is very good. Of course the food varies on the dining hall but overall I have never eaten anything that was gross or disgusting. Bridgewater also has gluten free foods as well as a dining hall specifically targeted towards commuters.

    I'm an officer in one of the sororities on campus and I love it! BSU has a really relaxed Greek community in that there's none of the craziness you hear about from big school Greek life. But that's not to say we don't take it seriously! There are 4 fraternities, 1 co-ed fraternity, and 4 sororities to choose from and they're all so great in their own ways.

    Greek Life is HUGE at Bridgewater State! You see a Greek everywhere you go and they are all extremely nice.

    I was once a part of Greek Life at Bridgewater State University but quickly realized that it was not the type of organization I was looking for. Although the school is trying to develop greek life there is not much of a presence now.
