    Welcome to BRIDGE!


    BRIDGE Program Logo

    BRIDGE is a student success program at The University of Alabama for undergraduate men, with a focus on exploring the campus and community experiences of Black and Hispanic/Latino undergraduate men. The BRIDGE experience begins with a weeklong kickoff event that is led by a group of upper-level students called the BRIDGE Builders. It's your opportunity to move in early and begin your journey as a UA student.
