Mount 101: Summer Bridge Program

The Mount Summer Bridge Program is a two-week college acclimation program for first year students that includes a 3 credit humanities course, community building activities, and field trips. This program helps you get a jump start to a great college experience.

Mount 101: Transition from High School Student to Mount Scholar

When you sign up for Mount 101 prepare yourself for a two-week all-inclusive academic program packed with a three-credit class, outdoor activities, museum trips, urban scavenger hunts, peer mentoring, and the chance to make life-long friends. If that isn’t enough, you can move into your residence hall early, get priority academic advising, and be first in line certain on-campus jobs. As an early enrollment summer bridge program, Mount 101 helps put you on the path to academic and personal success as you make the transition from high school student to Mount scholar.

Foundations of the Liberal Arts

Mount 101’s academic component, a course called Foundations of the Liberal Arts, prepares you to get the most out of the Mount’s curriculum in a low-stress environment by exposing you to a variety of academic disciplines from professors all around campus who will give you tips on research techniques and test taking. In addition to gaining an in-depth understanding of how to make the most of your academic resources, including learning about academic requirements and meeting key faculty, staff and administrators who will make a big impact in your college career, you’ll also learn practical college skills – such as time management and budgeting – all through small group interaction with staff members and senior Mount students.

Accommodations and Activities

For the two weeks before August Orientation you’ll stay in campus housing with your classmates, staff and upper-class students who serve as peer counselors and guides. Your days will be filled with class, info sessions or excursions, while your evenings are free to explore campus, hit the gym, or take short trips around the area. Most importantly, you’ll be one course closer to graduation and three credits ahead of your classmates.

The cost of the program is all-inclusive, covering the coursework, books, housing, and meals.
