Bridges Mentoring Program

​​​​​​Bridges is a program specifically designed for new students of color entering Wentworth.  While transitioning to college is exciting, it can also be challenging, especially for students who are underrepresented on campus and often in their chosen STEM fields.  The Bridges program is designed to help you build bridges to success!

New students will be placed in groups of 4/5 and will be assigned a student mentor and a faculty/staff liaison. Student mentors are returning students who have gone through the program in the past. 

To participate in Bridges, new students are expected to attend a one-day orientation program in August called IMPACT! the day before WOW (Wentworth Opening Week) begins.

Students will also be able to participate in social activities throughout the semester that are not mandatory, but highly encouraged. Trips in the past have included bowling, movies, and zip lining. 

Please note that there’s no charge to participate in IMPACT! & Bridges.  

Application typically go live after July 1st with a deadline of August 1st. Start building your Bridges by signing up with this application (the application for Fall 20117 is officially closed)

Bridges is sponsored by the Center for Diversity & Social Justice Programs.
