AbstractThis study used a mixed methods approach to investigate various adjustment issues of participants in a summer bridge program for engineering students at a predominantly White insitution (PWI) in the mid-southeastern region of the United States. Specifically, the academic, social, personal-emotional, and goal commitment and institutional attachment subscales of the Student Adaption to College Questionnaire (SACQ) were utilized for this purpose. The Summer Bridge Inventory (SBI) that was employed in this research revealed the summer bridge participants' opinions about the strengths and weaknesses of the program and its related activities.
