Summer Bridge is a 19-day residential, on campus, preparatory program for incoming
freshmen students who have been accepted to OSU and who plan to study a major in CEAT.
This program is designed to guide students as they transition from high school to
the academic rigors of CEAT coursework through academic review, mock exams, orientation
seminars and engineering design projects. Preparing students for calculus is a focus.
Summer Bridge can potentially help students shorten time to graduation by a semester
or by a full year depending on their level of math readiness at the start of the program.
Additionally, the students will build relationships with peers, faculty and staff,
and start the process of building strong study habits with the assistance of CEAT
upperclassmen as mentors. Students will live on campus and experience this transition
from high school to college.
