I like the campus atmosphere and I enjoy living on campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If you want a big party scene, go somewhere else. However, if you really want to focus on academics, also go somewhere else. Bridgewater falls somewhere in between, not the best social scene and not the best academics, especially for a health science major.



The school is full of racism and the administration does nothing about it. They only give the students a slap on the wrist if they are accused of racism, bullying, and harassment. I transferred because of it.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The school does nothing for their students of color.
