Summer Bridge Agenda
Day 1 – June 24th:
The first day of Summer Bridge will begin in the different scholarship groups invited to Summer Bridge. A scholarship or program representative will discuss the details of your scholarship or program with the group to better acquaint you with the expectations and requirements of that specific scholarship or program.
From there you will be introduced to the different student organizations, resources, and tools used by Sinclair Community College students.
Day 2 – June 25th:
Your second day at Summer Bridge is all about majors and careers. You will go on an individualized tour of campus based on your major, and learn more about the Career Communities on campus and how these communities can help you with your future career.
Then you will connect with academic advising to learn how important your relationship with your advisor can be for your completion.
Day 3 – June 26th:
On the third day of Summer Bridge you will be choosing sessions to attend in a conference-style agenda titled ‘Choose Your Path’. The different sessions discuss topics that are of interest to college students, and will be presented by Sinclair faculty and staff, along with Miami Valley professionals. Sessions range from what to expect of college professors, how to stay healthy in college, an inside look to different careers in the area, and much more.
Attendance of all three Summer Bridge days is expected to successfully earn Summer Bridge completion credit. If you have a conflict with the Summer Bridge schedule, you need to contact the Taylor Scholar Office at 937-512-4426, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
