Graduation doesn't have to mean good-bye. The Office of Alumni Relations, located in the Davis Alumni Center, keeps in contact with Bridgewater's alumni by inviting them back to the campus for social and educational programs including Alumni Weekend, Homecoming, Athletic Hall of Fame and the Writers' Workshop.
The Alumni Office works closely with the Career Services Office to plan several career nights throughout the academic year. Career nights feature invited alumni discussing their profession with students who may be planning to follow a similar career path.
The Office of Career Services (located in the Campus Center) assists students and alumni to assess their skills, interests and career expectations. Services include: career counseling, internships, workshops, on-campus interviews, full-time job listings, assistance with job search strategies, writing resumes and interviewing. An extensive career library of books, directories, videos and software is also available.
The center is home to the Office of Institutional Advancement, the Office of Alumni Relations and the Office of Development, and serves as a welcoming facility hosting a diversity of events. Students, alumni, and friends may reserve the center for workshops, meetings, and receptions - not uncommon activities for the center on any given day or night.
A modern and attractive facility, the Davis Alumni Center provides a warm environment for alumni to return "home."
Bridgewater ranks third among Massachusetts public institutions in awarding the greatest number of degrees - over 2,000 degrees in 2010, a 47% increase since 2000.
