Welcome Back

The 172nd academic year at Bridgewater State University began with the annual opening day breakfast in the Flynn Dining Commons, where President [b]Dana Mohler-Faria[/b] spoke before an audience of more than 700 faculty and staff, sharing his thoughts on plans accomplished and developments to come.

"This weekend, as students were moving in, I walked around the campus and was impressed with how enthusiastic the students were," he said. "It's wonderful to watch them and look into their faces and see the excitement in their eyes."

Native Tongue

News & Events

Four students this summer found themselves not only diving into the Dead Sea, but plunging headfirst into a foreign culture as part of BSU's Arabic Immersion Summer Program held at Yarmouk University in Jordan.

Designed by the Middle Eastern Studies Program, the six-week course helps students enhance their Arabic skills, both written and oral, while they absorb Jordan's people and culture.
