Bridge to Success Program

Rosemont College (PA)

The Summer Bridge to Success Program at Rosemont College helps students make the transition to college. Participants include first-generation students, students from low-income backgrounds, and minorities. The program offers counseling, staff mentoring, workshops, remedial programs, tutoring, and cultural programs. Participants are also linked with student mentors.

The program was first offered in the summer of 2009.

Funding for the program comes from the college and from private donors. Additional funding would help the college expand the program from its current limit of 25-30 students.

While specific comparative data are not yet available, the pilot year of the program had very positive results.
