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 $850, and includes room, board, trips, and activities. (Payments must be paid in full and cannot be combined with financial aid packages.)

*Note: 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.
  • Attend academic workshops such as effective study skills and note taking strategies.
  • Form meaningful connections with students, staff, and faculty.
  • Participate in peer mentoring.
  • Participate in campus activities and trips.
  • Stay on campus and experience residential living.**

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