“I am really grateful that I decided to attend Summer Bridge. . . I got a lot more than I expected! I met a variety of staff members and made a lot of great friends. (The) whole experience prepared me for my first week in college. Unlike other students, I already knew where to go.  All the activities were a lot of fun.  I highly recommend incoming students to take advantage of this amazing opportunity. Trust me, you won't regret it!”
