EOF Class of 2021

New Class of EOF Students Begins Their College Journey

This summer, 24 students enjoyed five weeks on campus during an introduction to college life through EOF. Attending classes, staying in the residence halls, and just relaxing with new friends, these young women and men began to realize that their dreams can come true.

On top of attending lectures, labs and tutoring sessions, students were required to read seven challenging books. "It expanded our intelligence," says Debbie Pacheco, of Paterson, N.J.. "Reading these books allowed us to think and interpret things differently. It gave a nice variety to the classroom."
