  • 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…

  • Again, as a transfer student they literally just throw you in wherever they have room. I'm in a room I definitely don't fit in with four other guys.…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    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.

    The food is not 5 stars but it is definitely delicious! A lot of options from day to day and a lot of vegetarian options for non-meat eaters!

    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.

    I am not a part of Greek Life but I have seen many fraternities and sororities around that many students take part in and really seem to enjoy being a part of.
