OASIS Summer Bridge 40th Anniversary

It's officially been 40 years since OASIS Summer Bridge began its wonderful program. Summer Bridge has contributed to the retention, achievement, learning and development of thousands of entering UC San Diego freshmen. When the program started in 1978, only 28 students attended the one-week transition program. This past summer, the program served 300 incoming freshmen in a 5-week residential program that offered students the opportunity to enroll in math and a common course in contemporary issues in society.  In just the past three years, Summer Bridge enrollment has increased over 61 percent!


Summer Bridge is just one of the many OASIS programs that help build community and foster the unique strengths and assets of our students. Our overall goal for Summer Bridge specifically is to have a positive effect on participants’ academic and social achievement and development from day one to graduation, and throughout their lives. So many of our program's alumni have gone on to various leadership positions, locally and nationally, using their education to improve our community and world.


Please consider making a gift on behalf of our 40th anniversary and allow incoming students to continue to enjoy the one-of-a-kind experience at Summer Bridge.
