1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most students live on campus because it is a residential college. They prefer not to have many students living off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not many parties on campus. Many of them go on around JMU and off campus apartments. most nights are pretty lively on the weekend, but there are a few concerns for women at parties around the area.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of small restaurants near the campus, but also there are many spots in Harrisonburg which is about 7 minutes from campus with your typically chain restaurants.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Many of the administrators are friendly and help make the campus a better place.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Process to receive aid was simple and painless. However, in my specific case the scholarship won't benefit me as much because I am graduating sooner than 4 years. I also dislike that you can't increase your scholarship via academic performance.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: more options and not so many repeated options. More polite staff that can speak English. Maybe add more dining options through outside sources.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Small campus with many good social areas. Lots to do around the area and easy to make friends to go out and do these things with. Classes are well rounded and the common areas are frequently used.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: We are not allowed to live off campus.

1 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

4 College Sophomore

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!

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.
