Billiken Bridge to Success
The Billiken Bridge to Success Program (BBS) is an intensive, three-week academic experience for students conditionally admitted to Saint Louis University. It is a highly selective opportunity offered to less than 15% of prospective applicants. Approximately 30 freshman attend BBS each year. As a summer bridge program, it accelerates students' transition into SLU. Through courses, service and community building, students hone academic skills, develop self-awareness and learn teamwork and other skills critical for success. Also, BBS functions as the first module of intentional programming that continues through the first year, and includes participation in the SES Peer Mentor Program as well as participation in a Learning Community.
