First Year

"Bridge Scholars PLUS is my family on campus." "I chose to apply to Bridge Scholar PLUS because I didn't want to lose the community that I found in the Summer Bridge Scholars Program. I wanted to create more memories, continue to grow as an individual, and experience opportunities that I never knew were there."

~Jamaica Jordan, Bridge Scholars PLUS Class of 2016
