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.
