Campus life brings together people from diverse backgrounds. As a Bridgewater student, you’ll encounter people from different parts of the U.S. and the world. You’ll have classes with people different that you, share meals with new friends, live with students from different cultural backgrounds and many of your new peers will become your friends.
Developing an awareness of and appreciation for different cultures is an important part of your education. It is a necessary component of your growth and for becoming a global citizen. Bridgewater College is an inclusive and understanding community. Here, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to stretch beyond your comfort zone. Learn about other cultures. Listen to new perspectives. Challenge your own thinking.
Our differences make us strong.
