What Students Say About The Bridge Program
“One of the highlights of [a Bridge class] was the diversity of the students in the class . . . . Through the reflections and opinions of others in the class, I got a great sense of how unique each intellect was. This was even true of the two professors through their teaching styles and personalities.”
“I liked having two very different perspectives from the professors.”
“This Bridge Program made me realize that we are all in this for the same thing – to further ourselves through education, and we all bring our unique contributions to the learning process.”
