BRIDGEWATER --More than 300 students moved their tassels to the left side today as Bridgewater College held it's graduation. Families and friends gathered inside the Nininger Hall at Bridgewater because of the rain but that didn't stop them from celebrating a life time accomplishment.
Joyous applause and cheers for the newly graduated seniors. Some grads aren't sure what to do after receiving their degree. Katherine Bradford just graduated and has other plans.
"I'm going to continue to volunteer at Bridgewater fire. Continue to live in the county of Bridgewater and see where everything goes from there," said Bradford.
Others plan to start in their field but in a different way. Jennifer Mara Stacy just graduated with Bachelor's of Arts in Philosophy and religion. She wants to doing some volunteer work.
"I'm gonna gonna join BVS, brethren volunteer service, for one year and I am going to be a work camp coordinator. And then hopefully I'll be traveling a lot and planning work camps all over in different areas, it will give me a lot of other opportunities," said Stacy.
Some new grads have to continue school. Matthew Phillips is going to grad school at North Carolina for nuclear medicine and molecular imaging.
"I did an internship with Rockingham Memorial Hospital and I wanted to intern there and went through the radiology department with R-M-H and I fell in love with nuclear medicines," said Phillips.
In whatever the newly graduated seniors have planned, it looks like they have a bright future.
