About Summer Bridge

Summer Bridge's Benefits

Note: 2020 Summer Bridge is canceled due to the Corona Virus outbreak.

Since 2015, the University of Wyoming's Summer Bridge Program has been offering Pokes the chance to forge ahead on their college degree while getting to know the campus and forming new friendships. By participating in Summer Bridge, you will:

  • Earn 6 credits toward graduation
  • Get connected with with returning Summer Bridge peer mentors who were once in your shoes
  • Meet dozens of other UW students
  • Live in the residence halls and enjoy delicious offerings of Washakie Dining Center
  • Go on excursions that simultaneously relieve stress and acclimate you to Laramie and its surrounding areas

You will connect with faculty, learn more about the ins and outs of UW, and get crucial advice from peer mentors, tutors, and coordinators. By the time you complete the Summer Bridge, you will be a half a semester closer to graduating. You'll feel like a you know the campus better, and you will meet some of the best friends you'll ever have!

Summer Bridge students continue into their sophomore year at a higher rate than peers who did not participate in the program. Summer Bridge is affordable, providing reduced tuition and fees for Wyoming residents. 

It doesn't end on the last day of summer! With a fall reunion and an opportunity to stay involved in future sessions of Summer Bridge as a peer mentor, students are asked to help with planning of social and educational events.
