BRIDGE Kickoff

The BRIDGE experience provides undergraduate men of color the opportunity to build a community at The University of Alabama, create a vision and action plan for their legacy at UA, learn about being a UA student, and most importantly, to have fun.

The community is led by FYE staff, the BRIDGE committee, and The BRIDGE Builders. The BRIDGE Builders, offer their own story about being a student at UA, give tips for getting involved, and help construct an unforgettable kickoff experience for new BRIDGE students in August.

BRIDGE students build meaningful connections with other participants and other individuals in the UA community. We are excited for new students to join us and build a bridge from the first-year experience all the way to graduation.
