    Abstract

    Pre-first year engineering and science program (PREF), which is a summer bridge program specially designed for underrepresented first-year students of color, is discussed. It is well equipped with intensive academic preparatory courses for entry-level calculus, physics, chemistry and english writing courses. In addition, time management and study skills seminars are offered in a college survival skills series to ensure academic success. Experienced university engineering and science faculty and staff oversee the program.
