On Wednesday May 1, 2013, the Educational Opportunity Programs at California State University, Northridge hosted its annual recognition for graduating EOP students. At the event, students had the opportunity to reunite with their EOP peers and staff, and experience the inspirational success story of keynote speaker and former EOP Bridge student, Rashitta Brown-Elize, who recently received her doctorate in education.
Dr. Brown-Elize spoke about her journey of entering CSUN as a “special-admit” freshman through EOP, and developing her potential not only by graduating, but also by continuing her education through CSUN’s master program. Her decision to continue onto higher education led her to pursue her doctoral degree from the University of Southern California.
Graduating EOP students were also presented with our commemorative EOP sash, which they will proudly wear during CSUN’s commencement ceremonies.
These EOP students hold a special place within the program and needless to say, our students will continue their lives with great insight and the potential to follow their dreams. Congratulations class of 2013!
