California State University, Chico American Language & Culture Institute welcomes 43 Nevada-California International Consortium students from Japan who will participate in this year’s Summer Bridge Program on the Chico campus.

The five-week, Summer Bridge Program runs through August 4, and features a combination of intensive English language coursework, academic preparation, and cultural immersion. Many of these students are improving their language skills in preparation for admission into an academic program at CSU, Chico, Butte College or another institution.

Now in its fourteenth year, the Summer Bridge Program is a Chico tradition,” remarked, William Dantona, American Language & Culture Institute Director. “We are pleased to welcome our friends from Japan. We have a lot planned beyond the classroom and campus experiences, they will have a chance to see the beauty of the area, enjoy downtown, catch a baseball game, and experience the culture of California.”
