Bridgewater College will welcome prospective students and their families to campus for Virginia Private College Week, which will be observed July 25-30, 2022. Rising juniors, seniors, transfer students and their families are invited to sign up for a session to visit the College and learn more about Bridgewater’s offerings.

The program, launched in 1997, is sponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV) to promote educational opportunities available at the commonwealth’s private colleges.

Bridgewater will host multiple information sessions throughout the week for prospective students and their families. The sessions, held at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, will include campus tours as well as overviews of student life, admissions, financial aid and academics. An additional morning session will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 30. Parking signs will be posted around campus.

“Visiting campuses is an important step in the college search process, and we are excited to welcome prospective students and their families to our campus during Virginia Private College Week to showcase the Bridgewater experience,” said Michael Post, vice president for enrollment management at Bridgewater College. “Visiting students will get a glimpse of the student experience at Bridgewater College and leave with a thorough understanding of what it means to be an Eagle.”

Each student who visits at least three of the 23 participating CICV institutions during Virginia Private College Week will receive three application fee waivers for Virginia private colleges. Students may use these waivers to apply for free to any three participating CICV colleges, and they will also be entered into a drawing for one of five $100 Amazon gift cards.
