Bloomsburg University’s Act 101/EOP recently completed another productive and enriching summer program, helping more than 250 students — many of whom are first-generation college students — get acclimated to college life and prepared for a successful college experience. Among the courses taken and academic support provided to the students over the past six weeks included reading, algebra, college writing, public speaking, U.S. history, Spanish I, computer skills, mindfulness and college orientation.
Act 101/EOP, coordinated through the Department of Developmental Instruction, provides support and opportunities for success to students traditionally under-represented in higher education.
Through this program, students …
- reach their potential — Act 101/EOP assists students, who are at a financial, cultural, social or educational disadvantage, in making a successful transition to Bloomsburg University.
- discover the value of progress — Act 101/EOP develops students to their fullest potential through academic advising, tutoring, mentorship and a pre-college summer program.
- exposure to cultural enrichment activities — avisit to the state capitol in Harrisburg and annual picnic at Town Park
