Multicultural Summer Link


BGSU’s Multicultural Summer Link, part of the Multicultural Student Link program, is a summer bridge program geared toward (but not exclusive to) first-year students of color. During this program, you will meet and connect with other first-year students, learn more about common aspects of college life and the BGSU experience, and enjoy academic and co-curricular activities. The program will provide you with tools and resources contributing to the success of your first year in college. This is also the perfect way for you to jump start your life as a Falcon!

The Multicultural Student Link overarching program provides support and programming for the duration of your BGSU experience. MSL staff and student leaders plan and provide engaging opportunities to strengthen your academic and social success.
