summer-bridge2

 

Baker University offers a summer bridge program for college-bound high school graduates who want to get a jump on their college experience, both in the classroom and activities outside of it. During the five-week program, students will earn 6 hours of credit, live on campus in the New Living Center and develop an understanding of the rigors of college academics.

Five university professors, a handful of peer mentors and residence assistants will be on hand during the program to ensure that participants begin college in the fall with the study habits and time management skills that will lead to success.

Gaining the Tools to Succeed

The Summer Bridge program was an amazing experience, one I will never forget. I developed skills that I could immediately use once I started college.
—Keyana

I really enjoyed the five weeks participating in the Summer Bridge program. You are able to build strong relationships with faculty and your peers during that period. By the time the program is over, you realize anything is possible in college if you remain committed to doing the work necessary to succeed.
