Summer Bridge Program

The TRIO Student Support Services Summer Bridge Program is a free early move-in option for a limited number of new first-year first-generation students that have registered full-time at BGSU and applied to join TRIO Student Support Services (SSS). During SSS Summer Bridge, you will meet other SSS students, learn about campus resources and support services, be introduced to your TRIO advisor and discuss goals, time management, and study strategies tailored to meet your unique needs, participate in engaging activities, and much more! Space is limited. Sign up early to reserve
your spot.
