Starting college can be an overwhelming experience for any student, especially for those who are the first in their families to do so.

That’s why Florida State University’s Center for Academic Retention and Enhancement’s (CARE) Summer Bridge Program focuses on providing first-generation students with a strong network of support and campus engagement opportunities.

Last week, CARE’s newest cohort of more than 400 students finished their first semester at Florida State with a solid foundation of tools that will help them on their college journeys.
