Attending University of Bridgeport was such a great experience for me. Coming in as a first-generation Hispanic student, I didn't know where to begin, and Student Support Services helped me navigate everything and pushed me toward my next steps. I am forever grateful for the staff and endless support I had and continue to have from my professors.
