Uniting the campus and community

Bridgewater State University loves to give back to the Bridgewater community. It’s easy to get involved and BSU encourages students to do exactly that.

This year Bridgewater Clean-up Day is taking place on Oct. 4 at Bridgewater Commons for the second year in a row. Participating students can meet inside the rotary next to the fire station. Those willing to participate are asked to arrive at 1 p.m. with rubber gloves and trash bags.

Jake Ames will be an active participant in this year’s clean-up day. Ames is the Senior Resident Assistant for Shea Hall, and has made this event his “Adopt-A-Program,” and it will act as part of his programming requirement.

Each semester Ames advertises an event that benefits the community.

Ames looks forward to the event, and hopes for a successful turn out. This is Ames’ first year helping out with clean-up day. Ames stated, “This event is a really easy way for fellow students to get involved. I think we should all positively participate and contribute in the community we live in.”

Senior Tori Sarsfield plans on participating in the event because she wants to change people’s minds about BSU students.

“The students of BSU have always thought that the townspeople of Bridgewater have had a strong dislike for our students, but we’ve decided we have to put an end to it. Some students do stupid things, but that shouldn’t reflect upon all students at BSU,” Sarsfield said.

Sarsfield said, “A majority of us call Bridgewater our home away from home, and we want to show that we truly care about our community just as much as they [town residents] all do. We want to be able to make an impact and help better our community and keep it clean and beautiful, so that’s what we intend on doing.”

The Enduring Appeal of Gilmore Girls

Gilmore Girls has been my favorite show since I was 14. I consider myself a bit of a Gilmore Girls connoisseur, as I have watched the series three times and I am currently on my fourth run-through. For those of you who do not know, Gilmore Girls is about the quirky and heartwarming mother-daughter relationship […]

An Honest Immaculate Review

Immaculate, starring Sydney Sweeney (she/her) and directed by Michael Mohan (he/him), was a good movie. That being said, it did not blow my mind. The plot was predictable and the messaging was heavy-handed. However, I enjoyed it. I don’t think it will become the next cult classic, but it is worth the watch. MINOR SPOILERS […]
