Take a break and get moving

You’ll need a break from studying. Get moving. Go outside. Explore the area. Or check out Bridgewater’s fitness center. You’ll find a variety of recreational opportunities on campus and in surrounding areas.

A healthy lifestyle is an important part of your personal development. Start working out. Try a fitness class. Go hiking, rock climbing or mountain biking at a nearby national park. Explore history during a day trip to the Frontier Culture Museum. There’s so much you can do.

Clear your mind. Relieve stress. Stay in shape. Make new friends.

Adventure is just a short drive away from campus. Hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing. Canoeing and whitewater rafting. Skiing and snow tubing. Caving. Trail riding. You’ll find something to do in every season.
