Incoming freshmen from the Kansas City area participate in Baker’s summer bridge program, NERDs, throughout the month of June. The 16 students are apart of the Kaufmann Scholarship Program and will earn three credit hours while learning more about the transition from high school to college. The program incorporates recreational activities and adventures such as a week long rafting trip through Utah and Colorado all while the students learn more about perseverance and adapt to a college lifestyle.
