EOP & MAP Highlights
This past May, the college graduated 30 EOP/MAP students. At their lively commencement ceremony, EOP alum, Latrice Walker was honored by the college by being awarded the “distinguished alumni award”. Check out some of our graduates on their big day in the photo gallery below. Latrice’s bio appears in our alumni updates section below.
The staff of EOP/MAP staff are excited to welcome its class of 2022. Seventy five students will be coming to campus soon for their prefreshman summer programs. Of course, the EOP class of 2021 will also be joining us for their Sophomore Weekend in July as well. The highlights section this summer includes the bios of all the peer mentors this year-what great group!
