Educational Opportunity Program (EOP)
This program is offered at many CSU’s, and
have been serving students for over 40 years. It
is here to support first-generation, low-income,
educationally disadvantaged college students.
The goal of this program is to get these
students into an environment to encourage
these students to succeed in life and in the
community. This service at the university
supports students to integrate into the
university, encourages the use of campus
resources, and directs students to attain their
academic, career, and personal goals.

academic excellence, and retention of CA’s

There are different
requirements for each year
once you are an EOP student.
I intern with the CSUF
juniors, who are required to
meet with their EOP advisor
at least once a semester, as
well as with the peer mentor.
I’m their peer mentor, so the
EOP advisors are my
supervisors, and I’m a peer
mentor for their caseloads.

I feel like they are providing many resources to the EOP students to make sure that
the students succeed. What I don’t like is that there are many students who qualify,
but once they are at Fresno State, they can’t join the EOP team. Anyone can get the
counseling, but the priority goes to the EOP students, who applied for EOP when
they were first applying for Fresno State.
