About Us

We are a group of undergraduate students at the University of Chicago that work to serve Chicago Public School high school students. As a Recognized Student Organization (RSO) at UChicago, we help CPS high school students develop a stronger working knowledge of what college and the application process entails by bringing them to campus for College Days. In addition, we are currently working on launching our pilot mentorship program that will connect UChicago students to CPS high school students for one-on-one mentorship meetings.

Examples of events for College Days include the following:

  • Workshops on the Coalition Application and Essay Writing
  • Financial Aid and Scholarships Information Session
  • Model Lecture
  • UChicago Admissions Information Session
  • Lunch Roundtables with Current UChicago Students
  • Panel with CPS Alumni
  • Campus Tour

Please see our Blueprint page if you are a UChicago student interested in working with us! Please feel free to reach out to us at bridgetocollege.uchicago@gmail.com.
