Bridgewater College named one of the Best Colleges for Your Money

bridgewater collegeCollege is certainly one of the biggest investments students (and their families) will make in their lives, both in terms of time and money. And the return on investment at Bridgewater College is one of the best in the country, according to Money magazine.

Bridgewater College was recently named to Money magazine’s 2018-19 list of the “Best Colleges for Your Money.” For the ranking of 727 colleges, factors such as graduation rates, tuition charges, student loan repayment rates, post-graduation salaries and 22 other data points in three categories—quality of education, affordability and outcomes—were analyzed. In each category, Money included at least one “value added” measure for a school, to control for average test scores and family income of the student body.

More than 99 percent of Bridgewater students receive some form of financial aid, and the college meets about 85 percent of calculated financial need. The average institutional grant and scholarship awarded to a 2018 fall first-year student will be more than $26,500. Sixty percent of alumni from Bridgewater’s class of 2017 were employed full-time in the first year after graduation, while 25 percent attended graduate or professional school. The average salary within three years for BC graduates is $41,800.

Bridgewater College is a private, four-year liberal arts college located in the Central Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Founded in 1880, it was the state’s first private, coeducational college. Today, Bridgewater College is home to more than 1,900 undergraduate students.
