Billiken Bridge to Success
The Billiken Bridge to Success Program (BBS) is an intensive, three-week academic experience for students conditionally admitted to Saint Louis University. It is a highly selective opportunity offered to less than 15% of prospective applicants. Approximately 30 freshman attend BBS each year. As a summer bridge program, it accelerates students' transition into SLU. Through courses, service and community building, students hone academic skills, develop self-awareness and learn teamwork and other skills critical for success. Aslo, BBS functions as the first module of intentional programming that continues through the first year.
