JACKET LINK: A BRIDGE to Student Success

Jacket Link/Bridge is a program designed to provide incoming first-year students with the tools and resources needed to jumpstart their first year experience. Preceding the Weekend of Welcome (W.O.W.), students spend a residential week on campus connecting with mentors, getting familiar with campus resources and services, and learning strategies to successfully transition from high school to college. Beyond the first week of the program, and throughout the academic year, Jacket Link/Bridge aims to provide a welcoming and supportive community for students. Activities and resources with an emphasis on academic readiness, campus support, and social/cultural enrichment will be provided for students.

 

By participating in Jacket Link/Bridge during the summer and beyond, students will:

  • Move in early and get acquainted with the campus
  • Receive student employment on campus for the fall term (renewable for spring term based on work performance during the fall)
  • Get priority registration
  • Receive a textbook stipend
  • Meet faculty, staff, and peer mentors before classes begin
  • Develop social connections by making friends early
  • Engage in social/cultural events
  • Get free BW Apparel
  • Gain an edge over other incoming freshman with early access and exposure to campus life and resources
