Promise Summer Bridge Program

What is the Promise Summer Bridge Program?

The Promise Summer Bridge Program provides incoming TWU students who are part of the Promise Program Partnership, an opportunity to jump-start their academic journey before the semester begins! Students participate in a one-week session consisting of college success workshops. The program is designed to prepare students and ease the transition into college. Examples of topics include general "college knowledge", study skills, time management, learning styles, strategies for studying, expectations, and more.

At the end of the program, you will attend Pioneer Camp.

  • Three TWU students take a photo at an on campus event.
    Receive academic coaching support
  • Participate in monthly academic workshops
  • Develop meaningful connections with their peers, staff and faculty
  • Gain necessary college success skills
