We have been busy here at EOP planning an exciting Bridge program for you. During the four days of the Bridge program, you will participate in educational and fun activities that will help you acclimate to your new life as a college student at Oregon State University. All food, transportation and housing will be provided during the entire Bridge program for participants. If you are no longer able to attend, please let us know immediately in order to avoid incurring program costs charged to your student account.

Plan on full days! We start each day of the Bridge program early morning and have activities planned through each evening.

    We like to infuse a little “school spirit” into the Bridge program. Each day of Bridge, we will have a different Oregon State color theme. If you have clothing (or accessories, hats, etc.) that match, feel free to wear them. These items do not have to be Beaver gear specifically. Participate as much or as little as you can!

    • Day 1 - orange
    • Day 2 - black
    • Day 3 - gray or white or anything OSU
    • Day 4 - wear your Bridge shirt (you’ll get this during Bridge)
