What is it?
The EOP Summer Program is designed to facilitate students' successful transition from high school to college. Through our rigorous curriculum and course work students enhance and build skills specific to college-level learning. Students stay on campus during the entire summer program including weekends (no visitors are permitted). In addition to our Educational Opportunity Program professional staff and instructors, we train and hire EOP Peer Leaders to live and work with our students throughout the summer program. Our Peer Leaders serve as mentors to our freshmen during the summer and into the academic year. The Summer Program serves as the foundation of our Program and marks the beginning of your life as a life-long member of our EOP family.
Where does the program take place?
All EOP Summer Program students will be living in Funnelle Residence Hall on campus in addition to all other residential students taking classes during the summer. Classes are held in various classrooms across campus similar to the academic year.
How does it work?
As part of our Summer Program students will participate in the College's Orientation Program on Monday July 6th and Tuesday July 7th with other incoming Oswego freshmen. Students do not need to register for Orientation. Parents are welcome to stay and attend orientation and should be sure to register and make arrangements to do so with the Orientation Office.
Students attend classes Monday through Friday from 8am until 5pm and have homework, tutoring, and activities in the evenings. Classes include the content areas of math, critical thinking, personal excellence, and study skills. All students will receive their summer program class schedule on Monday July 6th during our EOP Opening Meeting.
III. Community Service
As new community members of the City of Oswego, our EOP Summer Program students engage in community service each year by participating in our local summer festival, Harborfest, as community volunteers. Our EOP program is the largest volunteer community for this event and is highly appreciated for the contributions our students make to this yearly event.
The EOP Program covers all costs including housing, food, books, and activities for the Summer Program. Transportation to and from the campus is not covered by the program and is the students' responsibility. We do however, provide a bus for up to 50 downstate students (NYC and surrounding areas) to and from the campus for the summer for a $40 fee. Additionally, we provide a shuttle from the Syracuse transportation center to Oswego for anyone who arrives by bus or train. *Please see the bus and shuttle forms for more information and to make your reservation for either.
