Students Celebrate Accomplishment!

Felician University Equal Opportunity Fund (EOF) students celebrated the completion of their four week summer bridge program, each receiving a certificate at a luncheon held in their honor.

Dr. Edward Ogle, vice president of Academic Affairs, addressed the students, congratulating them on their accomplishment and officially welcoming them to the Felician family. Dinelia Garland, EOF Director at Felician, reminded the students that “this certificate is not just a piece of paper. It is a result of your hard work and dedication and it signifies your commitment to your future.”

This New Jersey state-funded program provides financial assistance and support services to students from educationally and economically disadvantaged backgrounds. All incoming EOF freshmen must attend this summer program prior to their first year at college, which is designed to strengthen the student’s preparation for university-level work and ensure academic success. During the Summer Program, students review math, English and critical thinking skills and become acclimated to college life.
