Students jumping

BRIDGES students come from diverse backgrounds, but they share common goals: To find a community of supportive and like-minded friends on campus, to continue to perform at the top of their class, and to go on to do great things after graduation.

That’s what BRIDGES is here for. We’re a tight knit community of high-achieving students who support each other in maintaining academic excellence and preparing for graduate school or a career. We do it by building bridges that connect students to each other, to campus leaders, to resources and opportunities, to professional networks, and to lifelong success.
