Bridgewater St. Opening Cape Cod Campus In January

WL – With Bridgewater State University’s Yarmouth campus set to host its inaugural semester beginning in January, and registration opening in the next few weeks, the school is offering details about its initial slate of undergraduate, graduate, and noncredit programs, while continuing to plan future courses.

Located at the former Laurence C. MacArthur Elementary School on Route 28, the new campus will initially host four classrooms, plus a conference room and administrative office space. Further renovations of the existing building are expected over the next few years, along with an expansion of course offerings.

The initial semester will see eight undergraduate classes, several tailored specifically for the Cape. As part of BSU’s cooperative approach with Cape Cod Community College, all of the university’s undergrad classes will be upper-level offerings, to avoid drawing students away from the two-year school.

First off, what the hell is the deal with this “no compete” crap with Four C’s? Has the “everyone gets a trophy” culture where we coddle everyone into mediocrity by rewarding all accomplishments equally really made it all the way to our college administrations? I think they should compete, you want higher enrollment? Be better. You know who wins in that scenario? The students.

Secondly, is it just me or is this one of the most blatant, thinly veiled, insulting sentences you’ve ever heard?

“As part of BSU’s cooperative approach with Cape Cod Community College, all of the university’s undergrad classes will be upper-level offerings, to avoid drawing students away from the two-year school.”

Let me translate that from PC to real talk for you…

“We aren’t going to offer crap like basic underwater basket weaving courses so we don’t steal any of the dummies from CCCC.”

Good lord Bridgewater State, take it down a notch will ya? Last I checked you weren’t exactly Ivy League either. Don’t think you can just show up on our peninsula all pretentious, making fun of our little college, and we won’t call you out. Sure, Four C’s might be a bit of a runt, but it’s our little runt dammit!
