4 College Junior

Academics: I like being in my major because a lot of people who are just like me are wanting to do the same thing. I have many friends who I have classes with and it excites me that we are headed in the same direction. It is also convenient if I have trouble in a certain area, I know I have someone to help me. The workload is sometimes crazy. Particularly, the classes with labs are usually the hardest and require the most workload. Internships should be available because I am in a health care field and help is always needed in that job area.

Academics: There are many academic opportunities at Bridgewater, but it also could limit you. For example, Bridgewater does not offer nursing programs, etc. The registration process is always a pain because everyone is trying to register for classes and may not get in a required class because seats are already filled.

College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life are always getting involved in the community. Some of them also play sports on campus and are taking on both experiences. Most non-greek students admire Greeks; however, others don't seem to agree. The "others" only like them for the parties they have and frown down upon them. Greek housing is not available on our campus; therefore, the Greeks either stay in a normal dorm on campus or live with other members in JMU off-campus housing.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I can't really speak for off-campus because I've only lived on campus. However, the availability on campus decreases every year because of incoming freshmen. I have heard of students being denied to live off campus who requested, which makes living opportunity difficult.

College Junior

Scholarships: I'd encourage everyone to apply for financial aid and in doing so, to have all the papers required with you at the time. It was an easy process and I do it on my own every year as a student. So, if I can do it, anyone can. Plus, it's free money; don't pass up the opportunity.

Facilities: The library is a peaceful place to go study and has three different levels for convenience. We have a green campus so you will see recycle bins everywhere. There are clubs and organizations who always schedule events if students need a break or are looking for something to do. We keep a tradition of ringing "the bell" after a sports team wins a game which sounds across the campus; pretty cool. Students normally hangout in "the link" or crimson cafe to do homework together.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The academic programs are very challenging and professors encourage you to think a little more than you would. Bridgewater is just an overall good school with a great community. The people are nice and you meet a lot of people who you become good friends with.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: School policy is very strict on the use of alcohol because it is a dry campus. It puts a hold on the students who meet the legal age to drink so they migrate off campus to have some fun of their own.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Whenever there are games, especially basketball and football, you can always count on our student section being filled and participating in chants. School spirit is the main target at our games because we want crowd involvement. The teams usually perform exceptionally well. Many of us like to travel to the away games depending on the distance. Faculty, staff, and parents are always there to help raise money and support the teams. Athletic facilities are excellent.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Bridgewater's campus is very calm. It's very small so everything is in walking distance. There is a 7/11 in walking distance that has been convenient for everyone. JMU's campus is not too far up the road so we pretty much migrate over there. There are many restaurants available, shopping centers, and places for fun. The Bridgewater community shows much love for students, especially alumni. They are very supportive and come cheer at the games.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone has their own sense of style. You have country boys and girls who dress a particular way. There's beach boys who portray a certain look. Almost everyone has to have "what's in" and others just like what they like. But typically, the guys are more dressed laid back and the girls frequently dress up. You can always tell who's in a relationship by the way the couples engage in one another on campus. If you play a sport, your social life is particularly high.

4 College Junior

Diversity: As you look around, you tend to see a lot of mixtures. There's not always white people with whites or blacks with blacks, etc. You see a lot of foreign people who are integrated with all sorts of people. Me personally, I am friends with numerous people of all different ethnicity.

4 College Junior

Diversity: the students can have a debate and look at boths side alot of times, it never gets crazy.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Its normally a hit and miss. But i do like the meal plan.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Alot of them are higher in econ standers, not many that I can find to relate to.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Its the one place I feel the safes is on campus.

4 College Junior

Facilities: There are alot of places to hang out with other students but it gets pretty cramped in places when midterm and finals come around. Also the food areas get pretty crazy.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Haveing a good relationship with your professors, alot live near campus and its fun to know them outside the class room.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They are pretty strict but if you act your age and do whats right your fine.

3 College Junior

Majors: Things need to be laid out better because I found it hard when Im in my major but they have the submajors like PT and AT. People join the major of HES becuase they injoy the feild but then they go half way through and learn about these majors and sometimes its to late for them to change over to that.

4 College Junior

Majors: Its very good I like the flow of it just wish they gave us more about what we can do with our degree.

4 College Junior

Athletics: They have a wide range of sports, but they should allow walk ons in all the sports even if you didnt play in high school. It would be different if Bridgewater was a D1 school but it isnt. But other then that our sports are well supported.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I enjoy having a place to go to after classes that is mine and I can be away from everyone. It would be hard to have that time if you were a comuter.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There arn't meany locations in Bridgewater for students to live so they have to go into harrisonburg and the houses are high priced and there arn't many due to the JMU students living in them.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not really sure if there is Greek life offered on campus.
