AIMS Four Year Plan

The Summer Bridge:

Transition to college

Students begin membership in AIMS during the summer following the senior year of high school with a mandatory four-week Summer Bridge Program. This unique residential program introduces the student to the Bowling Green State University campus and to fellow AIMS Scholars, and assists students with the transition from high school life to college life.

Students live in a University residence hall, usually with a roommate, use a University meal plan, and enroll in college level classes. Additionally, students participate in all AIMS functions and co-curricular activities, becoming familiar with the support systems available on campus and adjusting to life away from home.
