Admitted Student Events at BSU

Get one last look before you commit to BSU!

You’ve worked hard. You’ve been admitted. Now, you’ve got a big decision to make, so let us help!

We’re thrilled that Bridgewater State University is on your short list of schools, but we won’t rest until you've become a BSU Bear. We’ve got two types of admitted student events to help you with that decision.

Choose between our Admitted Student Days, hosted on two Saturdays in April, or join us for one in a series of weekly Admitted Student Fridays.


2023 Admitted Student Days

You and your family are invited to attend one of our two innovative Admitted Student Days, on April 1 or 15, from 2-5 p.m.

These two Saturday events allow you to choose your own adventure from among more than a dozen activities based on what you need to know before deciding to deposit at BSU.

You will be welcomed by BSU President Fred Clark and hear inspirational success stories from our students. You can then opt to attend our resource fair where you’ll meet your professors, staff from an assortment of offices, and students who run our various clubs and organizations. You’ll also be able to eat in one of our campus restaurants (and at our food truck), check out a first-year residence hall room, and take a student-led tour.

Space is limited for these events, so don’t delay — register today!

2023 Admitted Student Fridays

Join a special admitted student info session, Q&A, and tour!

If you’re unable to attend the Admitted Student Days, you can register for one of the more frequent and focused Admitted Student Fridays, offered weekly for March and April, from 2:30-4:30 p.m.  

The 30-minute information session, presented by the Associate Dean, will highlight what distinguishes BSU from other universities, and the Dean of Admission will be there to answer your questions. You and your guests will then join a 90-minute student-led walking tour of our beautiful campus — including a first-year residence hall room.
