Summer Bridge Programs Closing Ceremony
Onondaga Community College celebrated the conclusion of its Summer Bridge programs in August at a ceremony held in Storer Auditorium. The ceremony featured award presentations and a keynote address by Onondaga President Dr. Casey Crabill.
Summer Bridge programs at Onondaga are designed to provide incoming students with an opportunity to take courses to get a head start on the upcoming fall semester and returning students with the opportunity to take courses so that they can complete their studies in a timely manner. Students also participate in various enrichment activities which help them develop the skills needed to be successful in college. The programs include the Summer Success Academy, which is a partnership with the Say Yes to Education program, and the Educational Opportunity Program Summer Institute for pre-freshman and post-freshman students. More than 80 students successfully completed the program which ran for 6 weeks.
