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.

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.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I really enjoy the classes. The work load is substantial. Bridgewater helps you find internships and offers help finding interviews and critiquing resumes.

3 College Freshman

Academics: just got my basics done so far

5 College Freshman

Academics: I think that for my major, Elementary Education, Bridgewater was the best option. They have an amazing teaching program with plenty of professors who know so much about teaching. The registration process is a downfall of Bridgewater because it is an extremely high stress process. Being a freshman, I had to register for classes close to last for spring semester. Registration was at 6am where you would type in the codes for your classes, as the rest of the freshman class would, and then when you entered the codes, you would press submit and it would either tell you if you got into your classes or not. If you didn't get in, then hopefully you have back up classes because then you would have to enter those and hope that you are let into that class.
