Emory & Henry is offering a free program that provides instruction in skills intended to give students a head start in making the transition from high school senior to successful college student. Participation is limited to 20 incoming first year students.
The Emory & Henry Summer Bridge Program is a one-credit program that runs from July 23 to Aug. 3. Accepted students are invited to live on campus during the program.
The centerpiece of the program is a course entitled “Effective Learning Strategies for College Success.” The course is designed to help students develop study strategies, organizational skills, class discussion skills and skills in college-level writing.
The course also introduces students to quantitative literacy skills necessary for college success. Through class assignments and homework, students will draw on the types of projects that are common in first-year seminars.
In addition to working with members of the E&H faculty, students will work with specially chosen and trained student academic mentors, who will work with students into their first year at Emory & Henry. “Our experience shows that students who work with these mentors improve their academic performance,” said Dr. Michael Puglisi, associate dean of academic affairs and director of the E&H Powell Resource Center.
