"A Wonderful Experience"

I have had many wonderful experiences with the Education Opportunity Program.

Not only does EOP provide financial support to students who qualify but they also provide moral support. I can say I have grown to become a better individual because of my EOP peers and the wonderful advisors in the program.

I am constantly being pushed by my EOP family to do well. It is evident that this program wants one thing and one thing only: to see their students develop academically and most importantly to become strong people.

Throughout the short time I have been at SUNY Plattsburgh I have had many good experiences and look forward to many more.

"They Gave Me a Chance"

EOP at Plattsburgh gave me the chance no other college would give me and that was a chance to access higher education.

Not only have they given me support academically but emotionally as well. Without EOP, I don’t know where I be today. EOP has helped me grow as an individual and helped me discover new interests in my life like photography.

EOP treats everyone like family, which has given me confidence and motivation to be a hard worker. EOP has also helped me to make friends that will last a lifetime. EOP has made Plattsburgh my second home and I will always thank them for the chance they gave me at higher education

"I Wouldn't Want It Any Other Way"

To me, EOP means family. From the first moment I was accepted into SUNY Plattsburgh, EOP has been there for me every step of the way, whether it was academically or personally.

I can't imagine going through college without this amazing support system and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to pursue my dreams with the help of EOP. Once EOP, always EOP. And I wouldn't want it any other way.
