Santana Rael, Bridges’ Alumna
Bridges was “able to answer general questions about college, starting from what is it? To how do I get in? To applications, scholarships, to financial aid – the whole 360.”
Rebeca Romero Rainey, Bridges’ Co-Founder
Because Bridges participates with no specific agenda for students, it offers “a place to listen to those families… to inform, educate and support them in the process.”
Thomas Tafoya, Bridges’ Alumni
“When you’re working with Bridges, they get to know you personally, so they’re able to help you tell your story. It’s a really important part of the process.”
Sue Goldberg, Bridges’ Former Co-Director
“It’s not just about college, because there are so many ways to live a life. We don’t believe that going to college is better than not going to college. We’re not promoting a one size-fits-all agenda. It’s about exploring ideas and options and just knowing that you can do anything you want to do.”

“Having someone who knows the admissions process but can also look at an individual and help them see, these are your goals, we can be realistic in this way. We can still dream — but let me help you with the knowledge and experience that I have.”
Kristina Ortez, Bridges’ Ally & First-Generation Graduate
For first generation students, in particular, Bridges offers help in “thinking through [and] expressing your experience growing up in a place like Taos—how you navigate that, and how you prepare yourself for the next phase. I didn’t have that. I think it’s so valuable.”
