Administration: I say it is the worst for Housing. The student policy does not have a policy for every type of student and the housing application process gives every student a headache. Not to mention that if a senior wants to live off campus, the school will not even let them.

Scholarships: Applying for anything is going to be a hassle but the overall process is okay and definitely worth it.

Campus Food: The food at the KCC is okay most days, the only way that you will be eating good food is it you actually prepare it for yourself. For example if you get a grilled chicken at the grill station and then go to the salad bar and make your own salad.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is actually great! I used to go to a community college where I had to drive myself everyday to and from school and that took up a great deal of my time. That time spent driving I can now use to study more and excel in my classes because I live on campus at a beautiful school. This is my first year at Bridgewater and I live in Wright, it is a newer dorm so it is nice inside. It is also close to most of my classes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are not too bad. I live in Geisert, which is cleaned by custodians every weekday. Each side of each floor has a kitchen, a study lounge, two private bathrooms, and two communal bathrooms. The reason I am giving this an okay is because this year we had an issue with housing. Right now the college is near capacity and many sophmores and freshman do not have on campus housing. For freshman housing, Geisert is probably the best. For upperclassmen, Wright, Honors Houses, and Blue Ridge is pretty nice and Daleville for girls isn't too bad. Juniors and seniors can live in the apartments (Wrampler Towers) or Stone Village.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a couple places by the school that are good. The Mexican and Italian restaurant are good and there is a McDonalds and Dairy Queen right down the road. Most of the dining options are 10 minutes up the road in Harrisonburg

3 College Freshman

Administration: It depends on what dorm you are in and the situation.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have an excellent scholarship, and they give plenty of money to people to help!

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party too much...

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I have many food allergies, and the KCC is very accommodating in making sure that I have food to eat. What I can eat is pretty good, and they have a lot of options to choose from. They do a good job, but some days are better than others.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: A lot of athletes so if you're into the the "jock" thing, you'll be happy.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Hanging in the dorm is fun but if you're looking for classic, movie-like parties then JMU is where you want to be on the weekends.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Health sciences are a huge major option along with business.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of the buildings are older but the rooms are really big. First-years like Heritage the most and Stone Village is where most seniors want to live. I did random roommate and we get along really well but some people didn't get as lucky in the lottery system. Some of the buildings could use an update but for the most part they're all pretty good.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: BC is a small school and the campus police are great. I always feel very safe.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The KCC sucks. Be prepared to eat off campus or cook in your dorm quite a bit. There are staples like burgers, chicken, salads, and sandwiches but after a while it gets old.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Harrisonburg is about 10 minute drive away which is awesome. A lot of people go to JMU on the weekends and are even involved in clubs there that Bridgewater doesn't offer. The town of Bridgewater doesn't have a lot but the general area has great places for hikes and general entertainment activities.

Academics: It's a small school so there is a lot of opportunities for classroom involvement. Your professors know who you are (for the most part) and by the end of the semester, you'll have a made a friend or two. We have an interterm which is a three week long period where you take one 3-credit course. It gives you the opportunity to experiment, get gen-eds out of the way, work on an intensive course for your major, or even just take an easy class to boost your GPA. Some of the classes are overwhelming but it's not an absurd amount of work.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: As much as I have bashed Bridgewater College for their terrible dining services, non-existent parking, and unnecessary rules and regulations, you will not find professors that care about you more. Even as I am transferring my favorite professor Dr. Strano is supporting my decision and looking forward for me. She is the greatest advisor and has helped me not only on an academic level, but on a personal level as well. I have learned just as much outside of the classroom as I have inside of the classroom, and that is how I picture all of the professors at Bridgewater College.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: The set up of internships and job prospects is non-existent

2 College Junior

Majors: There isn't a lot of Business major internships/job opportunities locally because you live in the middle of nowhere.

College Junior

Majors: I haven't had an internship so I am not qualified to answer this question
