They are recognized leaders on campus, serving as group facilitators, key contacts with campus resources, peer academic advisors, educators and positive role models.

Experience On-Campus Living First Hand!
During Orientation you will be spending the evening in the Shea and Durgin Halls, giving you the chance to get to know your new classmates a bit more and to see what it would be like to live in a traditional first year residence hall at Bridgewater. All students will be staying with a same-gender roomate for the evening based on residential status (i.e residents will stay with residents, commuters will stay with commuters), and each room comes with a Twin XL bed, desk, and wardrobe for each student.
