You’re more than a number to us. You matter.
Find out why we talk so much about “educating the whole person.” It’s not just about what you do in the classroom. It’s about growing. In every possible way.
Learn more about our history and traditions: Ringing the Memorial Hall bell. Celebrating Founder’s Day. Even our athletics nickname. (We’ve been the Eagles for more than 90 years!)
Students often say BC is like a family. Part of being a family means welcoming everyone. No matter who you are, or where you’re from. You’ll make friends for life here.
Take part in actively caring for the earth: Join a student organization like the New Community Project. Work on our recycling crew. Or volunteer to help in the community garden.
That’s just the beginning. Find out what we’re doing to make BC greener.
Bridgewater is right in the middle of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. Whether you’re looking for arts and culture, outdoor activities or history, the Valley is the place to be. The city of Harrisonburg is just a few minutes down the road from campus. And we’re only about two hours away from both Washington, D.C. and Richmond.
