About the Program

EOP Summer Bridge

The Summer Bridge Program (SBP) is designed to assist new first-year students in making the transition from high school to university life. All first-year students admitted into EOP will participate in the Summer Bridge Program before they begin their college journey at Stanislaus State University in the Fall.  The program will provide you the opportunity to learn about a variety of university resources and build community with other EOP students and staff. Summer Bridge allows participants to develop a strong sense of belonging and connectedness to EOP and the university.
