Summer Bridge Program

Designed for incoming first year students, the goal of the Summer Bridge Program is to create an experience where students can live on campus before the start of the fall semester and familiarize themselves with the social and academic expectations of college. Participants will learn how to use campus resources and also connect with other first year students.

The Summer Bridge Program is open to any first year student who is interested in participating.*

Cost for the program is $1250, and includes room, board, trips, and activities. (Payments must be paid in full before the start of the program, and cannot be combined with financial aid packages or paid by outside foundations.)

* Fall student-athletes'  pre-season practice schedules preclude them from participating in the Summer Bridge Program.

Benefits of the Program

  • Become familiar with the campus, student services, and available resources.
  • Form meaningful connections with students, staff, and faculty
  • Participate in group discussions with upperclass, peer mentors
  • Participate in service learning projects
  • Gain confidence and independence through trips and group activities such as whitewater rafting, ropes course, and other adventure based trips
  • Participate in campus activities and leadership development
  • Experience residential living with a roommate**

**Because the Summer Bridge Program is a residential experience, all participants are expected to live on campus during the program.
