Please note that we are aware of potential concerns about the viability of meeting in person in August due to COVID-19, and so we have various contingency plans in development in the event that we are unable to actually engage in an in-person Summer Bridge Math experience. We will keep you up to date if plans need to be modified.
When does it start? Where will I stay?
Summer Bridge Math move-in will be Sunday, August 9, 2020. You will move into the room that will be your permanent space for the academic year so you need to bring all of your personal belongings. Details about your room assignment will be sent to you by Residence Life by July 15.
What is the cost?
There is no charge for Summer Bridge Math and this includes room and board.
Who is on campus during Bridge?
More than 120 first-year students will be here to participate in several different programs during Summer Bridge. University regulations related to campus living which will be presented to students at a Residence Life session on the day you move in.
What about meals?
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided every day during Bridge.
Are parents and siblings encouraged to come that day and how long should they stay?
Your family members are most welcome on Move-in Day! There will be family elcome sessions and a shared meal on Sunday, August 9. Students will begin the college transition portion of Summer Bridge at 9:00 am Monday, August 10 so families will say their goodbyes on Sunday night.
Should my parents come back for New-Student Orientation on August 21 and 22?
It’s great if your parents can return to Trinity for the full orientation on these two dates. If not, we plan to address key facts with them during the Parent Info Session on August 9.
Is there any cost to attending Math Bridge?
There are no additional costs to you or your family for attending. This is made possible by a grant from the Hearst Foundation and Trinity’s Starting Strong Quality Enhancement Plan.
