The Bengal Bridge program provides so many opportunities for students to adapt to the university culture and life and to learn how to be successful, thriving intellectuals. It really is a jump-start for students, helping them learn to navigate their courses, to know how to communicate with their professors, and to gauge the speed and rigor of university work. Every year, I am amazed to see the academic progress our students have made by the time they finish our program. I see so many of our past Bengal Bridge students around campus in leadership roles, getting into competitive programs, and making the best of their time in college, and they continuously tell me that they couldn't have done it without Bengal Bridge.
