What Students Are Saying

3.72 Average Rating
There are many different resources to use at Bridgewater and the best way to succeed is to not be afraid to use them. Like the AAC, where there are tutors for math, writing, and studying habits and time management. I used the Writing center my freshmen year and it made me a strogner writing. Everyone is so helpful and are there to help you, so don't be afraid to ask.
Breanna from Pittsfield, ME
Make sure you get involved on campus, whether you are living there or commuting. You will meet so many new people and it will really make the experience so much better. Also don't forget to take advantage of all the help that the school has to offer with classes and tutoring and more!
Nicole from Weymouth, MA
Try to apply early action if you can. At Bridgewater State many students who fit the requirements get denied through regular decision because so many people apply. If you meet the requirements for Bridgewater State and apply early actions, you are automatically accepted to the school and are guaranteed housing. Don't be discouraged if you do not get in. Bridgewater State offers a program with Massasoit Community College where you can attend Massasoit until you are able to transfer to Bridgewater.
Alexandra from Weymouth, MA
Stay focused on what you came here for. education is a top priority for many people at this school, so study up and be studious and you'll be just fine!

It is in your best interest to get in your FAFSA in on time as well as all other paperwork involving your admission and financial aid. Also, be proactive in your experience! If you keep up with your school work and get involved on campus your time at Bridgewater will be beyond what you expected.

My suggestion would be to take many different types of courses to discover what your passions and interests are.
