Answer / Topic Details: 

"This program teaches you so much and gives you a chance to decide what's best for you in your future. As fun as it was going to class and going on field trips, I got a chance to build new relationships with new people. For me meeting new people is a new opportunity to learn more about people that are different than me. Instead of me staying home and having a boring summer I made the right decision to participate in the Bridge Partnership Program."

"The Bridge Partnership Program was one of the best experiences of my life and I am truly grateful to the Bridge Partnership Program for giving me this opportunity. The program showed me that college is very fun and exciting and now I can see myself going to college in the future."

"My favorite part of the program was being able to meet new people. There are older college students there that look after you, and some become like an older brother or sister to you.  Going to Bridgewater will make a difference for you and everyone should think about going!"

"My experience last summer helped me to come out of my shell and stop being shy. I met so many new people. I had to present in front of so many new faces. It was hard for me to speak English well enough for a presentation, but everyone was so supportive, so I had to try. I could be myself in front of them."

"Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to come and learn at Bridgewater State. I never had an opportunity like that before. I learned a lot about school. I used to get all D+ or C, but the summer changed my life a lot, and now I get B+ and A. It was a pleasure to go there to study about school. Also my mom was happy because it was free to go there, but she says thank you for helping. I went there because my goal is to be Vice President of the USA. When I get back to school after being at Bridgewater, I felt superiority in myself because I learned a lot. I really appreciate the help, you put me on the right path. My experiences last summer helped me too in my language because I went there to go learn to speak with others in a different language. My teachers helped me a lot on writing and speaking in English."

"Bridgewater was a great place to be at for the summer, and yes I would love to go back. Why? Because I made a lot of friends there, and I was a great person there.  Bridgewater made me think more about going to college, like college would be a good thing to do, so I really want to go to college really badly just because of Bridgewater."

Academic Collaborations
Answer / Topic Details: 

In September of 2014, in collaboration with Pedago Press, the Pedro Pires Institute for Cape Verdean Studies will be launching an academic journal that will be published twice a year in hard copy as well as an online format. Titled as “Diaspora-Journal of Cape Verdean Studies: Emerging Interdisciplinary Perspectives,” the journal will be an academic outlet and resource for those wishing to contribute generally and/or to deepen their knowledge of Cape Verdan studies and Creole societies.

In collaboration with SENSE Publishers, the Pedro Pires Institute has signed a contract for a Series Production under the Lead Editorship of Executive Director Joao J. Rosa, PhD. The Institute will produce a maximum of two books per year for the next five years. The series, with a wide range of thematic coverage, aims to celebrate the works of authors who deal with Cape Verdean experiences and identities as well as those whose research seeks a broader understanding of immigrant experiences. The primary aim of the series is to increase the availability of such academic works in English for a greater appreciation of the Cape Verdean experiences.

 

On May 31st, the Pedro Pires Institute for Cape Verdean Studies will be hosting Film Director Valerio Lopes in screening the film/documentary CABRALISTA.

The event will be from 4 to 6:30pm in the Conant Auditorium in the Science and Math Center (24 Park Avenue)
