Lewis University’s SUCCESS program provides opportunities for academic success to students who need assistance in meeting the admission requirements of the University. The program accomplishes this by providing on-going mentoring and academic support services to students during their first year at Lewis.
The SUCCESS Program exemplifies Lewis University’s Catholic and Lasallian Mission by making a college education accessible to deserving students of all academic backgrounds. Personal, one-on-one attention, a hallmark of a Lewis education, serves as a key component of the program. The University community is committed to helping students in the SUCCESS Program achieve their goals. Professional staff and faculty mentors provide students with a solid foundation for continued academic success.
SUCCESS begins with the Bridge Program, which takes place each summer for two weeks at the end of July/beginning of August. All students who wish to be admitted to Lewis University through the SUCCESS Program must first participate in and successfully complete Bridge.
The Bridge Program is a two-week, residential, intensive college preparatory program held on the Lewis University campus. Bridge provides potential students with basic skills and strategies to assist them in making the most out of their college experience. Course work focuses on:
Admission to Lewis University through the Bridge Program is based upon academic performance and appropriate participation in Bridge social and academic activities. Attitude, motivation, skills, and self-awareness will also influence admission.
The SUCCESS and Bridge Programs are housed in the Leckrone Academic Resource Center (LARC), located in the North wing of Benilde Hall.
