BUCS Bridge Pre-Orientation Program
The Building Unity and Cultivating Success (or, BUCS) Bridge Program is a pre-orientation program designed to serve first-year students from first-generation and/or underrepresented racial and ethnic population backgrounds. This five day program introduces incoming students to Whitworth's faculty, resources, and peers before first-year orientation begins. After the pre-orientation, participants may opt-in to our peer mentoring program to receive ongoing support from our peer guides and staff throughout their first year. Students involved in BUCS Bridge experience the benefits of community-building, gain skills in college navigation and further develop their multicultural identity. For more information about this program, contact Whit Jester at firstname.lastname@example.org or 509.777.4845.
Incoming first year students will receive an email inviting them to register. BUCS Bridge 2023 will take place Aug. 28 – Sept. 1.
