I like the campus atmosphere and I enjoy living on campus.
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.
The school does nothing for their students of color.
BSU is a university that will challenge you and make you a better individual overall.
When you find your group of people, then it can be fun. They have a lot of events going on and they try to make it as fun for the students as possible.
The food and cross-contamination. I and so many others have been told the food was safe to eat whether it be allergies or other reasons, and it was not. I've seen firsthand a friend need an epi-pen and had to go to the hospital because when we ordered they said she could have fries. They constantly try to keep you there. It's technically a 4 year school but it should really say 5 years because nobody finishes in 4 since the school makes it impossible. Psychology advisors are horrible and completely demeaning.
Bridgewater is small so class sizes are smaller feels a lot more comfortable and the familiar size of classes is similar to your average high school class size.
The school is cheap. The food is poorly made everywhere. The food plans don’t last the whole semester. The dorms are of bad quality and are old so there are a lot of issues. The closed dining halls are down too early so you may miss a meal and not be able to eat at night.
It's a fairly large university but with smaller classroom sizes.
Certain classes are taught by a professor that dooms their students to fail and through lack of alternatives, students have to take the same class a few times with the same professor in order to obtain their degree.
