Develop Lifelong Friendships

Bridgewater College Alumni Association (BCAA)

The BCAA was formed in 1899, believing that “the associations of school life are too precious to be allowed to die.”   The organization has existed since then with the purposes of bringing alumni in closer touch with one another and with the institution, and promoting the interest and welfare of Bridgewater College.

BCAA Board of Directors

Directors are nominated by the entire alumni body to serve as their representatives for the alumni body. The board is an advisory council to the office of alumni relations, particularly, but also to Bridgewater College, regarding the needs and desires of the BC alumni. Board members provide valuable assistance to the office of alumni relations staff, helping this office meet its goals and objectives. The support of board members is vital to extending the outreach of the College staff. The Board of Directors meets quarterly and is proud to represent you and your concerns.
