The Summer Bridge program is a 5-week summer program designed to provide cohorts of incoming first-year students with the experience and tools they need to be successful as they transition into their first year of college. All participating students will be enrolled in six credits of course work chosen specifically to align with the requirements of their desired majors. Students will live on campus in a personally and socially supportive community to help them transition to the WCU college environment and will participate in a variety of academic support activities that are tied directly to their individual needs and/or the requirements of their intended programs. In addition, students will participate in a variety of other programming activities designed to assist them to make important academic and social connections and to prepare them to proactively plan for and actively participate in their journey of self-discovery at WCU.
The 2018 Summer Bridge program will take place during the second summer session (July 2 – August 4). Participants will be housed in a university-owned dormitory with peer assistants and resident counselors. Move-In Day is Sunday, July 1, and classes begin on Monday, July 2, 2018.
