Why attend the Summer Bridge Program at VUU?

The Summer Bridge program was an amazing program. It helped me adapt to being away from home, even before the actual academic year began, therefore I was well prepared socially. Secondly, it gave me a feel on how the professors teach on a collegiate level. During the Summer Bridge Program, I became very familiar with the campus and all the services available to me. Finally, it helped me get a jump start on my education.

The Summer Bridge Program provides students with a head start to their college education at Virginia Union University. It allowed me to learn how to become more responsible and manage my time. Without the Summer Bridge Program I do not believe my freshman year at Virginia Union University would have been as successful as it was, particularly because I am a student athlete and the skills that I acquired from the program has helped me a great deal. I encourage students to take advantage of this once in a life time opportunity.

The Summer Bridge Program was a fun and a major experience for me. The program helped me prepare for college life. I’ve learned a lot from the staff of the program and the courses that I took. This program helped me excel and learn to manage my time as a new college student. I recommend attending the Summer Bridge Program for all incoming freshman.
