Congratulations to the BSC/U community. As a loyal alumnus of this institution it is wonderful to see this 10+ year odyssey to university status reach its destination. This is but one stop on a continuing journey to seeing our Alma Mater continue to offer a quality education and opportunities to students from not only Massachusetts but across the United States and around the world.

As a career educator in Massachusetts, I was so always proud to be among the Bridewater trained teachers. Now, I am also very pleased to have Bridgewater State receive the university recognition it has deserved for so many years!

What a long way this institution has come since my Class of 1957 began its journey in 1953! It is a delight to have been able to follow its growth from a small five-building teachers' college to the comprehensive higher education facility it is today. Its transition is the result of much hard work over a lengthy period of time by a dedicated and enlightened group of people. All are to be congratulated for their vision and perseverance. Thank you, Bridgewater State University folks!
Congratulations to the Bridgewater State University community. This is a dream that I started hearing about when I was a student in the mid-50s. "Good things come to those who wait". Thank you Dr. Mohler-Faria!
Congratulations BSU! I am proud to be a graduate of BSC, Class of 1976.
