Summer Bridge is a six-week residential academic support program for a select group of entering first-year students. The program is designed to ease participants’ personal and academic transition from high school to the University. Students enroll in an English composition course and in one mathematics or chemistry course. They also participate in activities designed to supplement their summer experience by engaging in high-impact learning experiences often facilitated by units such as the UNC Learning and Writing Centers, University Career Services, and Student Life & Leadership. Additionally, cultural and recreational activities are significant components of the program, as students are introduced to the University and the array of opportunities and resources available.
