WHITTIER – A group of incoming students seated around a long table in the Rio Hondo College’s Campus Inn called out advice they have received during their two-week Summer Bridge orientation:
“Don’t be afraid to try new things,” said one student.
“It’s up to you – if you like something, just keep doing it,” shared another.
“Even classes you don’t like teach you something,” another added.
The discussion, led by two student mentors, was one of several designed to help the 150 incoming students attending the first of three Rio Hondo College Summer Bridge sessions focus on how to get the most from their college experience.
The gatherings are a key element of the eight-day Summer Bridge program, which includes presentations from panels of students, faculty and deans, math and English workshops, a campus tour, scavenger hunt and other activities.
