Experience Life at BC Firsthand

Visit Bridgewater

The best way to experience Bridgewater College is to visit campus. That’s when you’ll see what life at BC is really like. Once you can picture yourself as an Eagle, you’ll know this is the right place for you.

Choose from the options below and schedule your campus visit today.

Summer Campus Visit: May – August

Summer is a great time to get a “first glimpse” of Bridgewater College. Schedule a visit to meet with an admissions counselor, when you’ll get answers to your questions on the admissions process, academics, financial aid and student life. A tour of campus is included, and the entire visit takes about 90 minutes.

We encourage summer guests to come back for a second visit to experience Bridgewater when classes are in session.

  • Meeting with faculty, staff and coaches. Visit with faculty from your area of academic interest, receive information about admissions and financial aid, and meet coaches from various BC teams.
  • Lunch and campus tour led by our student ambassadors. A tour of the equestrian facilities will be available following lunch.

North Carolina and Northern Virginia Receptions

  • North Carolina reception: March 2, 7- 9 p.m. at The Duke Mansion, Charlotte, NC
  • Northern Virginia reception: March 8, 2:30-4:30 p.m. at Maggiano’s Little Italy, McLean VA

Rather than traveling to the BC campus, stay in your local area and we will come to you. Meet with a current student to get their input about campus life, talk with representatives from the admissions office, talk with a professor to find out about academics, talk with an alum to share their experiences about life after college and most importantly meet some of your future classmates!

This is a causal event that we are hoping you and your family will attend!  There will be light refreshments provided and you might even have a chance to win some BC apparel.
