Today a Boxer, Tomorrow a Bear

Bridgewater State University has long had a message for Brockton students wondering whether college is right for them: “Yes, it is.” Now, BSU faculty and staff can easily spread that positivity within the walls of Brockton High School.

The university has a dedicated office next to one of school’s cafeterias. The space, unveiled at a recent ceremony, is the latest example of the vibrant BSU-Brockton partnership.
