Bridge Week: A great way to acclimate to college


Despite the blistering heat, the students of Bridge Week still gathered outside of Carroll Stadium to show their school spirit. The students danced to songs such as the “Cha-Cha Slide” and the “Wobble” and listened to a welcoming speech from Chancellor Paydar.

Bridge Week is a freshmen program at IUPUI that has been around since it’s introduction in 2001 with 19 students. This year, 1,100 students participated in 49 different sections offered by the program. The number of students involved in the program has generally increased by 200-300 students each year since its creation. Bridge allows freshmen to adjust to campus life before school actually begins.
