Student Retention and Success Services

We are here to support student success so that you stay on track towards graduation.  The student retention and success services provide support for students who prefer a support network or additional resources to navigate the campus.  Our Eagle Success program and student organizations are great strategies for students to be connected on campus.

Eagles Success

The Eagle Success program is a student success initiative for new students at the College.  It is a peer mentoring program that supports students who seek advice or information from upper class students who could have similar experiences.  We understand that it can be comfortable to reach out to your peers about personal or student related questions.

Eagle Success is an open opportunity for Bridgewater College students; however, research shows that underrepresented, Pell-eligible and first-generation students experience strong outcomes by participating in peer mentoring programs.

We invite first-year students to participate in Eagle Success so that you develop a stronger connection to campus and feel a sense of belonging.  Upper class students should consider being mentors to help support and guide new students.

Please email the Eagle Success team at to learn more about being involved as a mentor or a mentee.
