 think college was                                             STUDENTS OF COLOR

 possible. Now he plans
 to go for his master’s.                                       7,409 (24%)

 What changed his outlook? In a word: CAMP. The                FIRST-GENERATION STUDENTS
 College Assistance Migrant Program helps make
 a college education attainable for students from              6,181 (20%)
 migrant and seasonal farmworker backgrounds.
 With CAMP’s support, Oregon State became
 affordable. And when Angel got here, CAMP                     FRESHMEN AVERAGE HIGH
 provided academic resources, mentoring and
 activities to help him thrive. Which he has —                 SCHOOL GPA
 through an internship taking plant tissue samples
 for local growers, a research project using x-ray             3.63
 absorptiometry to study livestock bones and a
 study abroad experience examining agricultural
 systems in Puerto Rico.                                       MEAN SAT/ACT COMPOSITE SCORE
 Angel is now a mentor for first-year students in
 the CAMP program, sharing the same tools and                  1,120/24.8
 resources he received. “Without the program,
 I wouldn’t be as successful as I am now,” Angel
 says. “Programs like CAMP allow for that                      HONORS COLLEGE STUDENTS
 inclusivity of students who don’t necessarily have
 a college background. It provides that sense that             1,057
 education is for all.”
 He’s right. And he’s proof.
