“Bridges was a great experience for me and my family.”
Bridges has worked with more than 2,600 students since its inception in 1997. Our mission it to equalize access to higher education for all students, especially those who are the first generation in their family to access college. Students like Thomas Tafoya, who is currently a senior at Duke University.
In an interview that Bridges held with Thomas, he reflected on his experience working with the counselor here:
“Bridges kept me on schedule… I had this preconception that the process was more simple than it actually is, [but] there are a lot of layers for each application. There’s a lot of deadlines, a lot of things going on during the process. Bridges really helped keep me on pace, to keep me going.”
