BRIDGE is an initiative for first-year, undergraduate men of color to begin to build their story and legacy at The University of Alabama. It is a 3-day, 2-night program designed to empower men of color to access campus resources, form connections with UA faculty and staff, and also build relationships with current students.

As a BRIDGE participant, you will participate in activities that will introduce you to student involvement opportunities, help you set goals for your time at UA, provide a space for you to meet other first-year men of color, and offer you the chance to network with upperclassmen men of color and UA faculty & staff members.
