Honors Summer Bridge Program


The Honors Summer Bridge promotes critical and collaborative learning through exposure to unique learning environments. Students will be challenged to engage with specialized opportunities to begin their college career at the utmost level of success. They will create strong bonds with fellow students and faculty that will foster a supportive community. Finally, they will become familiarized with Wyoming, Laramie, and the University of Wyoming to make the transition to college a positive and welcoming experience. The 2023 program will run from July 14 through August 11, 2023. The Honors Summer Bridge program is part of the UW Summer Bridge program. For more general questions see the About Summer Bridge Program page.
