Summer Bridge is a seven-week residential academic support program for a select group of entering first-year students. The program is designed to ease participants' personal and academic transition from high school to the University. Students enroll in an English composition course, and one mathematics or chemistry course. Also, they participate in learning strategies instruction offered by the Learning Center. Cultural and recreational activities are significant components of the program, as students are introduced to the University and the vast array of opportunities available.
