Speaker 1: Transferring to Bridgewater was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I really had no idea what this place had to offer me.

Speaker 2: I am very glad that I came to Bridgewater State University. Choosing a topic that truly interests you is one of the biggest opportunities here. Without that bond, without the ability to openly ask questions and have a discussion, you sort of lose that, but here that's welcomed.

Speaker 3: The commitment to social justice is definitely at Bridgewater. It's the main reason why I chose to go there for my master's program. They're all about diversity. They are about advocating and challenging the social injustices that are happening in this world.

Expect more.
