Summer Transition Program (STP) is an optional bridge program that is recommended for students from culturally diverse backgrounds, rural and inner-city areas, first generation college students and those who want to enhance their cultural awareness and become fully acclimated to our environment. The program is free and open to any new incoming first year student although space is limited. The purpose of the program is to aid students in making a successful smooth transition from their high school environment to being a successful student at University of Lynchburg.
STP students have a proven record of becoming campus and community leaders as well as having a greater success rate in their academic endeavors. Programming for Summer Transition Program is intentional; each element of the schedule is planned with specific goals in mind.
These goals include:
- To further develop students’ academic competence in a collegiate setting
- To guide participants to the development of social capital
- To establish a welcoming environment that promotes diversity and inclusiveness and is free of bias
- To fully introduce students to resources available to them that can help ensure their success
