Students from the McDaniel College Step Ahead program. illustration

McDaniel Step Ahead, hosted by the Student Academic Support Services (SASS) office, is a unique summer bridge opportunity for first-year students with disabilities. Participants in McDaniel Step Ahead become equipped with the academic, social, and independent living skills necessary for a smooth transition to college.

Through intensive workshops, team-building activities, and field trips, Step Ahead participants will begin to establish both a college routine and a support network that incorporates college resources, supportive faculty and staff, as well as some of their peers. Each participant will be matched with a Step Ahead peer mentor who will support the first-year student in making the most of the SASS office’s resources.

Step Ahead runs each year in the five days before first-year orientation; participants can move in early and begin to establish important connections within the college community.

The SASS office will mail more information after students register with the office. Registration will begin in May.
