Math and Science mini-courses are taught by university professors who are researchers that know how to teach. You'll be able to learn from them in and out of the classroom as you listen to lectures as well as scan the skies from the university observatory... or hike the scenic trails along mountain bluffs and canoe the lake on campus. When you get back to the dorm at the end of the day, you will be greeted by the smell of freshly baked cookies or barbecued chicken wings prepared by the Bridge staff. The knowledge, personal connections, and motivation provided by the Bridge faculty and staff will help focus your direction for college and beyond.
