What does the program offer me?

The BOA Summer Bridge Program cultivates a diverse community of scholars and prepares them to engage actively to meet the challenges of a small private university. The program supports students by providing:

  • A stimulating and challenging academic experience in two core subjects
  • Personalized, comprehensive advising and tutoring
  • An intellectually and socially enriching residential and community experience to begin building your network
  • Workshops, excursions, and guest speakers to build your skills
  • The opportunity to live on campus and experience college life before arriving on campus in the fall

2023 Program Dates

The 2023 program runs for 5 weeks from Monday, July 17 until Friday, August 18. Classes and program activities will take place Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm. In addition, there will be social opportunities and campus activities on the weekends.

Note: Because Summer Bridge is only 5 weeks, students must be prepared to commit to the full length of the program in order to be an eligible participant.
