Summer Bridge is designed to help incoming GCC students with a successful and smooth transition into college.
Through Summer Bridge, students are introduced to career and major exploration tools, and take the opportunity to begin thinking about their academic and career goals. Summer Bridge familiarizes students to important campus resources, helps students plan their courses for fall, helps students understand transfer options and degree requirements, and helps students develop a growth mindset.
Students in Summer Bridge also have the opportunity to gain insight and support from a GCC SPARK Peer Mentor. SPARK Mentors share their experiences and tips for success with students, while incorporating activities and ice breakers throughout the program.
Summer Bridge is a fun and interactive way to learn about GCC, be prepared for your first semester of college, and get connected with peers, faculty, and staff.
Participate in Summer Bridge and you will be prepared for success at GCC!
