I've done two summer bridge programs at Philander Smith College so far and they've both been pretty fine. I'm just thankful to have been given the opportunity to receive 15 credit hours before even attending in the fall. However, I'm here now and so far it has been great.

My experience at my school has generally been amazing the people are genuine and outgoing and all want to pursue their goals in becoming college graduates and put a lot of effort into what they do. The professors are nice as well and do their best to assure your that you will succeed.
