Assemble. Educate. Discuss.
Convocations at Bridgewater College include a wide variety of programs addressing important social issues, including films, speakers, presentations, campus worship, performances in the arts and travel experiences.
At least two convocations are held each week, and each student is required to attend at least seven per semester.
Convocations are held in five different formats:
- Traditional Series
Held every Tuesday morning at 9:30 a.m., these convocations typically involve speakers, presenters and participants from within the Bridgewater College community. These convocations are designed as a forum for the campus and the community to stay abreast of relevant issues.
- Evening Event Series
Held on weekday evenings, usually at 7:30 p.m., these convocations typically involve speakers recruited from the national or international scene and are supported by Bridgewater College's endowed lecture funds.
- Sunday Cinema Series
Held on occasional Sunday evenings at 6 p.m., this film series will show topical and provocative films. These films are sponsored by various academic departments and faculty members who lead discussions following the films.
- Convo on the Road Series
Held occasionally, with a limited number of participants, these convocations are field trips with an educational twist.
- Lyceum Series
Held on specific evenings at 8 p.m., lyceums, which are part of the Evening Event convocations, bring professional musical and cultural events to the College.
