As a participant in Bridges to Adelphi, you’ll meet twice a week with your academic coach and learning strategist. Together, you’ll develop an individualized plan to address the challenges all college students face. Your coach and strategist will work with you one-on-one to reduce procrastination and anxiety and improve time management, organizational, problem-solving and social skills.
You can also opt to meet with a peer mentor and participate in twice-weekly social skills and support meetings, and monthly outings with your fellow Bridges students.
Each Bridges to Adelphi student is offered the opportunity to work with a vocational coach to identify areas of interest and strengths. Students will have access to assistance from the Center for Career Development with résumé writing and job interview skills, and on-campus job opportunities that are available for Bridges students.
Peer mentors are volunteer undergraduate students who serve as a friend and role model to students enrolled in the Bridges Program. Peer mentors are a vital aspect to Bridges because they help create a smooth transition for students and encourage them to become active participants in the Adelphi community by introducing them to clubs and other on-campus initiatives. The peer mentor relationship also allows the students to continue to build on their interpersonal skills.
