#177: EOP Family

The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at Stony Brook helps to “provide access to higher education for economically disadvantaged students who possessed the potential to succeed in college, but whose academic preparation in high school has not fully prepared them to pursue college education successfully.”  Stony Brook EOP has been recognized for being a model program and was even featured on PBS.

One student, Shadae, made an excellent point: “There is a reason why EOP here at Stony Brook is the best in the nation; it’s not just because of academics, but simply because of the EOP Staff who have always helped the students to accomplish their greatest achievements. We aren’t just a part of a program here at Stony Brook, we all represent a family.  What I appreciate the most is the fact that everyone looks out for the best interests of each other. I LOVE MY EOP FAMILY!” How awesome is that!?
