看看 Hard Work Can Do

The Bridgewater State University community is living proof that hard work transforms.

Our 学生 juggle education with the other—sometimes greater—demands of their everyday lives. They’re tenacious. 有弹性的. Driven to overcome the odds and make the most of every opportunity.

And we match their drive with innovation, compassion and an unwavering commitment to their success.



Bridgewater was named a 2024 Best College in America by The Wall Street Journal. The ranking found that 学生 may earn a complete return on their investment at BSU in roughly two and a half years, another reason to have confidence that attending BSU is a wise choice.

BSU is considered the 4th safest college nationally based on an academicinfluence.com排名. Bridgewater’s high marks reflect strategic investments, the BSU Police Department’s effort to build relationships with 学生, and the university’s commitment to transparency and compliance with the Clery Act, an act that strives to provide 学生 and staff with information about campus policy and statistics.
