Updated 7 years ago Special to HNN Provided by Marshall University
HUNTINGTON, WV (HNN) - Incoming freshmen at Marshall University are fast-tracking their college success during the Summer Bridge Program, a pair of free workshops designed to give new students the fundamentals they need for college success.

Approximately 100 freshmen wrapped up the first session  and more than 100 already are signed up for the second session, which begins July 23. That session is still accepting interested students.

Dr. Rudy Pauley, Associate Vice President for Outreach and Continuing Studies, said the program’s first session went well and that participants felt it was worth giving up some free summer days to sharpen their skills.

“This program is all about our commitment at Marshall to student success and the participants seem to really want to work hard to excel,” Pauley explained. “We have faculty working with new students with the idea that if we can make them stronger in math and English before they even officially step foot on our campuses, we are helping them ensure success in college and beyond.”

Session Two will run from July 23 through Aug. 2. Classes will meet from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday on the Huntington, South Charleston and Point Pleasant (Mid-Ohio Valley Center) campuses. The Summer Bridge Program is free to incoming freshmen who have been admitted to Marshall for the fall of 2012, have paid their enrollment deposit and meet workshop entry guidelines.

Seating for Session Two is limited and registration is required. For more information, call 304-696-3646 or e-mail recruitment@marshall.edu
