Bridge to Success

June 18 - July 29, 2017

Bridge to Success, a student-focused program for first-years, has been designed to create life-long learners who will succeed in the most rigorous of academic climates. Not only will students be exposed to the challenging academic life of the University, they will bond as a group through a variety of social and extra-curricular events. Bridge to Success promises to be an exciting and beneficial program for all involved.

As a transition program, Bridge to Success prepares first-year students to meet the rigorous demands and expectations of the University’s academic program. The program eases the first-year student into college living and learning. Participants will take two courses during the program. The units earned in these courses will go toward a student’s total unit hours required for graduation.

By participating in Bridge to Success, incoming first-year students will not only learn to cope with the pressures of college life, they will also build relationships with peers and faculty/staff members who will support them through their years at Richmond.
