TLRC Bridge Program welcomes incoming freshies

The UPV Teaching and Learning Resource Center welcomed participants of the Bridge Program in English and Mathematics on their “first taste” of UP education on July 31, 2023.

The Bridge Program, conducted by the Teaching and Learning Resource Center, is held annually and aims to bridge the gap between senior high school exit skills and college-level entry skills of incoming first year students in English and Mathematics and spanned across two weeks, July 31 – August 14, 2023, just before the semester’s official opening.

The Bridge Program of the Teaching and Learning Resource Center was conducted in collaboration with the Division of Physical Sciences and Mathematics and the Division of Humanities of the College of Arts and Sciences.

Select faculty members from said Divisions served as faculty tutors of the Bridge Program: DPSM faculty for the Math course, and Humdiv faculty for the English course.

This year, for the first time ever since its launch in 1997, the Bridge Program strayed from its tradition of welcoming only those who are tagged by the UP Office of Admission as “bridgers” and invited non-”bridgers” to the program as well.

At the end of the hurdle, 24 bridgers for Math and 18 bridgers for English across different degree programs completed the two-week program and started their UPV journey as official Iskolars ng Bayan.
