I loved Bridge class...
"I loved the Bridge class and was happy with what I learned, such as American culture and religions, starting with the holidays on the calendar and traditions involved in each one. Critical thinking skills, as well as the rules of writing, like grammar and punctuation that we learned, are all complementary. This foundation in academic writing gave me a lot of confidence in my abilities."
—Benedicte Torres, student
