Saturday College

The Bridges to a Brighter Future Saturday College component enhances the four-week summer program by providing year-round academic and personal support. Eight Saturday Colleges are held once a month at Furman University throughout the academic year. Students receive tutoring in all academic areas, and participate in workshops that focus on college admissions, financial aid counseling, well-being, and SAT/ACT prep.

The goals of Bridges Saturday College are to:

  • Further increase students’ academic and personal success.
  • Keep students focused on the academic and personal goals they have set for themselves.
  • Identify student challenges as they develop, in order to provide opportunities for intervention before problems magnify and become insurmountable.

Saturday College is funded by a grant from The Jolley Foundation.
