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

3 College Junior

Diversity: There's a lot of diversity here and everyone is very accepting of one another

3 College Junior

Majors: I feel like if you pick a major you seriously enjoy, you'll find opportunities and find your passion. As for a systematic outlook on Bridgewater's capabilities in the processes of helping specific majors find jobs and internships? They aren't that great.

3 College Junior

Academics: Most of the classes you are required to take are not even remotely relevant to your major, which seems to be a huuuuuge waste of time when it comes to reaching your goal.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It doesn't exist. If they know you're living off campus and it isn't at your parents house, they'll try to get you back on campus because they think that if you live off campus, you don't need to go to college here.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Our teams are okay, they aren't very consistent so you could have one year where we win ODAC's, our divisional football championship (we won this year), and then the next year suck and go un-winning in the conference. School spirit is fueled by alcohol. Yeah yeah, we're a 'dry campus', just like Tom Cruise isn't gay; both have cover-ups for something. The facilities are good if you're an athlete, otherwise good luck trying to find a bench or weight you want in the Funkhouser Center

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The health center is hardly open and, when it is open, you're probably in class like a normal student. Even if you go there she will refer you to an urgent-care center where you are looked at by a nurse practitioner, or someone who can actually help you.

As for sexual assault, it is taken into account to prevent it and let it be known that there are methods of coping with and reporting a sexual assault. I don't know if it has happened while I have been enrolled here because it is kept quite and anonymous if it be the case.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: The only Greek Life at Bridgewater College is if you are able to find the underground fraternities and sororities within the college. Good luck and may the odds forever be in your favor.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: You have El Charro which is very great Mexican food and I go there once a month because it is fantastic, on top of that you have a lot of chain restaurants such as McDonalds and DQ. If you want to try new Italian or Greek food, this is the place to be, they have a new pizza joint opening every semester and they are all amazing.
