The BRIDGE experience provides first-year, 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.

Participants are led by The BRIDGE Builders, current UA students who will serve as peer facilitators throughout the BRIDGE program. The BRIDGE Builders, offer their own story about being a student at UA, give tips for getting involved, and help construct an unforgettable experience for you as a BRIDGE participant.

BRIDGE participants build meaningful connections with other participants and other individuals in the UA community – join us and build your bridge from your first-year experience all the way to graduation.
