Educational Opportunity Program

Summer Bridge

Free and Mandatory

"Being part of EOP has made my college career easier because I met so many people through Summer Bridge. We are like a family and help each other out with our classes." 

The EOP Summer Bridge program is a transition program for invited EOP first-time freshmen. The program is designed to help students acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to build a bridge from high school to a successful college experience. During Summer Bridge, freshmen meet with mentors, experience university lectures, and attend a variety of workshops and presentations. Summer Bridge is also an opportunity for EOP participants to meet each other and the faculty and staff who will support them throughout their educational journey at CSUMB.

"While in Summer Bridge, I met so many great people, who are still my friends today, three years later. It was also a great leadership experience, as well as learning true teamwork. This program really helped the transition in to college."
