Firstyear students complete second Summer Bridge Program at USD
Thirty-one first-year students received a head start on their college careers thanks to this unique program, which began July 1 as a four-week intensive program to assist first-year students in their adjustment to academic and campus life at USD. The program was established for incoming students to strengthen their leadership and math skills. They also had an opportunity to network with USD faculty and their new classmates as well as complete USD’s Speech 101 course.
“The Summer Bridge Program is a great opportunity for first-year students to get individual help in courses that will provide a foundation for their academic careers,” noted Christina Keller, associate dean of the College of Arts & Sciences at USD. “A program like this gives first-year students the confidence to achieve their academic goals because of the hands on academic advising and study plans they receive. It also gives students a chance to meet new people and become more familiar with campus resources before classes start this fall.”
Additional Summer Bridge Program activities included a trip to Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo, paintballing at the local arena and tasting the variety of unique food available in the Vermillion community. Move-in Day for all new USD students is Friday, Aug. 23. For more information about USD, visit http://admissions.usd.edu or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
