Summer Bridge

ATTENTION: This year's residential program will be from July 18th through July 30th!

 

What is Summer Bridge?

Summer Bridge is a free two-week program designed to assist with the transition from high school to college. Students live on campus, take mock college classes, participate in relationship-building activities, and attend two field trips. This is a prime opportunity to get familiar with the campus, prepare for college-level coursework, and get to know over 25 peers and faculty and staff who will be mentors and lifelong friends. Upon successful completion, students receive a personalized certificate of achievement to recognize valuable contributions to the program!
