Traveling more than 3,000 miles to attend Northeastern University, Noah Babcock said the Summer Bridge Scholars Program was just what he needed.
Babcock, 18, from San Francisco, California, who will be studying mechanical engineering in the College of Engineering, said it was important for him to participate in the program to get adjusted to the Northeastern environment and become comfortable being far away from home.
“It felt like a good way to make connections before school,” Babcock said. “We had a bunch of really cool events, and a lot of team building experiences, which is really helpful for people who are just getting into college.”
While some Northeastern freshmen are still carelessly enjoying the summer before embarking on their college careers, about 260 new students gathered on the Boston campus to partake in a unique opportunity provided to them by the university—the Summer Bridge Scholars Program.
