Hello to all of you Bridge Blog followers–
One month into the new year, and boy has the Bridge program been busy! So far this last month we’ve had a Family Night where friends and family can experience what the program is like and get their name in if interested in joining the following year–great turn-out too, with nearly 100 people showing up. Also, this last weekend some of us went on an afternoon excursion to the L.A. Public Library with Rosa Garza-Mourino. She gave us a great inside tour of where to find all the departments, where the research library is held, interpretations of the statuary and murals found there, and what the symbolism means in the entryway and gardens. Really a great tour! Last of all, the tutors and students just finished their first tour of their neighborhoods of choice to do an in-depth field study. This quarter the students, after finding all they can about their field study neighborhood, will make a proposal to do some community service there. This not only takes collaboration on the research but agreement on what should be done with the community’s preference in mind–not an easy task but a very rewarding one, which kind of sums up what it’s like to be a T.A. in the program. Very rewarding.
