Building a Bridge


The USC Summer Bridge program is a six-week residential immersion plan for incoming freshmen who may benefit from an early start to college.

The jump from high school to college is overwhelming for most USC students, but especially fall sport athletes whose schedules are packed from day one. 

This week, eight football players, three women's basketball hoopsters and a men's basketball freshman are going through orientation and bouncing around Heritage Hall.

The student-athletes are enrolled immediately in two four-unit classes and academic workshops.  The goal of the program is to promote self-confidence and a sense of belonging. 

By the end of the summer, the freshmen will have built relationships with faculty, advisors and staff plus they will know their way around campus and understand the resources made available to them.
