2 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I would not live here after graduation due to the fact that there is nothing in this city to keep here. There is a lack of diversity in the community and it somewhat resembles a town in the south, there is some racial profiling and it is not a healthy environment for me to be in. There is also a lack of culture and history which makes this city on popular because there is a college in the middle of the city.

Drug Safety: At this school you can notice when a person is sneaking alcohol into the dorm, by putting it into their backpack before the security check at 7pm. You can walk down some hallways at a residence hall and smell marijuana whcih diffuses and encompasses the entire hallway. It is unfortunate but there is little done to prevent this and personally there should be 24hr security checks to try and prevent alcohol and drugs being allowed on campus.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: I do not partake in the nightlife scene here at this school however from what I have heard from others is that there are a few apartments off-campus that have decent parties. There are also a few bars located on campus and this can lead to an influx of drunk college students walking the streets late at night when the bar closes which is annoying and disturbs people while they are sleeping.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: At this school not too many people participate in the Greek Life program and students look down upon it as though it is just a big joke. Greek life is no prominent on this campus and some of that is in part because there is no housing for it and a lack of notice about it as well.

3 College Senior

Weather: The weather impacts this school because of the commuters. The school bases their decisions to have school or not during inclement weather by seeing how long and how safe it would be for commuters to come to the school. During the majority of the year though the campus has pleasant weather which allows students to spend time outdoors and meet new people.

2 College Senior

Athletics: This school is mainly commuters which leaves less people on campus on the weekends and during the later hours. As a result not to many people pay attention to the varsity sports and it represents a lack of school spirit. Same is in regards to intramurals, not enough people are involved which decreases the amount of programs available for students to participate in.

4 College Senior

Computers: The technology at this school is an essential part to this school. There is wifi throughout the campus, 4 large computer labs for students to use, both regular and color printing that is cheap to use, and the network is reliable a majority of the time. The fast technology allows students to keep up with professor's lectures and assignments which benefits their education.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I feel that the school does not help the students as much to find off campus housing due to the fact that the school would be losing money. The school earns more money if they can get the students to live on campus compared to having the students live off campus. I have not pursued off campus housing but from what I have heard the school helps students somewhat to find an apartment or something off campus.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: On this campus I feel safe due to the strong efforts done by the campus police. They are usually patrolling the grounds and are very present during times when students have house parties or during outside events on campus. I feel safe when I walk alone on campus at night due to their being a lack of on campus crime. I am pleased with the safety of this campus and I hae complete faith in the campus police to keep the students safe.

4 College Senior

Academics: At my school the program I am studying Physical Education which is taken seriously and the professors are very knowledgeable in their respective fields. The workload is tough but it is essential because it helps get you ready for the workforce once one graduates from college. It makes me proud to be studying under this program and I beleive it can get even better within a few years.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining options only consists of fast food and chain restaurants. It is cheap food that is not the best quality and for college students they will eat any food that does not cost much money. Examples of these restaurants include pizza, Chinese food, McDonalds, and Taco Bell. Unfortunately in this area there is a lack of diversified restaurants that incorporate different cuisines from around the world and that makes the college students forced into purchasing low quality and inexpensive food that is not beneficial to their health.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: At BSU you get it all. People from every ethnic background and economic standing

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Bridgewater police love to ticket commuters, and arrest people who drink.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a complete joke on campus. If you like to do community service and pay for friends its for you! If you like to party or want a traditional sense of greek life like in the movies then don't bother.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The school is very strict concerning alcohol and marijuana. However there is still a ton of people that do it so its pretty noticeable if you live in the dorms. Just don't get caught with it twice because then you will get kicked out!

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: BSU is a dry campus so that right there says it all. It is still easy to sneak alcohol into the dorms and people do go out on Thursday and Saturday nights. During the winter not too many parties take place since everything is off campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety is great it is deffinatly something to take advantage of!

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wi-fi connection constantly requires re connection. The printers in the dorm always become unconnected also but the IT staff is excellent and will help with any problems

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics at BSU is not really very big. You will see people walking around campus in their uniforms but attendance at games is not huge.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The only way your going to receive a decent amount of financial aide is if your FASFA states so. Other then that there are no scholarships offered to incoming freshman. However there are some offered to sophomore,Juniors, and Seniors.

3 College Freshman

Academics: How well you do in the classes depends on the professors you get. No matter what the major is your professor can make or break you when it comes to grades.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live on campus. I live at home with my parents.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I don't spend too much time on campus.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Im a commuter so i always have my car with me. On of my friends however takes the train to school. I think it's cool that there is a train station on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Im a commuter so i don'y know too much about how strict the campus is. I do know for a fact that they are strict about the alcohol policy.
