Students in the Educational Opportunities Program, Student Support Services, and College Assistance Migrant Program take a moment to celebrate their scholastic achievements during the Honor Roll Reception held in April. Check out the photos that I got from Sheila Roberts, an Advisor in the Educational Opportunities Program. (Thanks, Sheila!) To all students honored: OSU is proud of you and your accomplishments! Congratulations!
In addition to the photos, check out the departments’ websites for more information on their programs and services.
The Educational Opportunities Program (EOP) was created at Oregon State University in 1969 to provide support for historically underserved students. These include students of color, older than average students, students with disabilities, students who are single parents, low-income students, students who have been rurally isolated, veterans, older-than-average (25+), 1st generation in college (neither parent graduated), or any student whose life experiences have impacted their access to education.
Student Support Services (SSS) is a federally funded TRIO Program designed to motivate and support students from disadvantaged backgrounds. TRIO includes six outreach and support programs targeted to serve and assist low-income, first-generation college students, and students with disabilities to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to postbaccalaureate programs.
The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) is a federally-funded program designed to support students whose history includes migrant/seasonal agricultural work. The program provides financial and academic support to first-year freshman students with the goal of preparing them for further success in college.
