Eccles Beginnings Summer Bridge Program

The Eccles Beginnings Summer Bridge program is a four-week bridge program for incoming freshmen who are first-generation students, or who come from underrepresented backgrounds, and who are interested in studying business. Students live on campus and participate in a variety of activities to acclimate them to the University of Utah and the David Eccles School of Business. This program hopes to ease the transition to college and give students a jump start on their freshman year.

What Our Students Say

I love how I will get to walk out of this program feeling knowledgeable in regards to the business school and the University as a whole. Also, I get to start school alongside new friends from many diverse backgrounds.

College is more than just education, it is a place to thrive, find your skills, find new people and network.

This program made shifting into college EASY. I feel confident about most everything and for anything that I feel I need help with, this program guided me towards the resources to find the answers.

I learned that there are more resources around campus than everyone expects. I also learned that there are a lot of mentors and advisers who are willing to help.

I learned to be confident; the case competition really pushed me.

Our writing instructor was super nice and helpful. I loved her background and her desire for women’s rights. She was great!
