“The Honors Program has been extremely valuable to my time at Bridgewater. I think the different services it provides and the physical space for meeting other people and learning new things has been the most valuable aspect…It has allowed me to push my degree further than I had ever expected, and has given me the tools to enter my field with experience and confidence.”
