The Original Summer Bridge Program

For 35 years, EOP at CSU Bakersfield has brought a majority of its incoming students onto campus during the summer after graduation and before Fall quarter.  This event, called the EOP Summer Bridge Program, focuses on the transition from high school to college and prepares our students for the expectations of University coursework.

Participants in Summer Bridge have applied to and been accepted by the EOP program.  Some participants can attend voluntarily for a head start on the fall, while others are attending as a condition of their admission to CSUB--but all participants gain a valuable understanding of the expectations of college study, a cohort of new friends to take classes with in the Fall, and a mentor who will share his or her college experiences and provide a roadmap for the first year. 

Summer Bridge 2020 is currently open for incoming 2020 EOP freshmen. The program will be running from June 14th to June 26th.

Students interested in becoming a part of this great CSUB tradition should apply to the EOP program when they apply to CSUB and contact Jesus "J. R." Perez at 661-654-3216.
