College Transition Course

Transitioning to Bryn Mawr

Bryn Mawr students are expected to complete the school’s college transition course known as, THRIVE during their first-year at Bryn Mawr. Through Breaking Barriers, we offer the Metacognition course that students may choose from to fulfill the THRIVE requirement. The course allows scholars the opportunity to learn about the transition to college with peers who are also part of the Breaking Barriers community.

Metacognition: A semester-long academic course that applies the FGLI student experience to components of the THRIVE curriculum and includes an added focus on understanding one’s learning and thought process. Students will also earn 2 PE credits and 0.5 academic credits. The course is taught by Reggie Jones, Associate Dean of Health & Wellness.
