SEEK Summer Bridge Program
The SEEK Summer Bridge Program is a mandatory five-week, non-residential program for incoming freshmen SEEK participants. During the summer prior to their first academic year at Hunter College, summer participants take non-credit-bearing introductory courses in English, Writing, Chemistry, and Mathematics. Participants attend weekly skill-building workshops, daily tutorials, several cultural events, (i.e., museums) and team-building exercises, in order to prepare for the rigorous academic work required of matriculated Hunter College students.
Based on individual student performance during the summer program, the SEEK staff and faculty work with participants to develop an Education Action Plan which will map out each student's career at Hunter.
