EOPS: (619) 660-4204
I currently attend San Diego State University as a junior transfer student. I am a former foster youth, first generation college student. I never really had any dreams of going to college because I figured I wouldn’t be able to afford it and I didn’t know of any help.
The EOPS program helped me with a book voucher. I got priority registration which was really nice. I got to work with Nora Hinsley, an academic counselor in the EOPS and UP! Programs. She helped me pick all of my classes for Cuyamaca College. Nora was extremely helpful and was always supportive and made sure all of my needs were met. She knew me by name and knew my situation. If I needed help with my classes, I knew I could go to her for tips on how to get tutoring. While participating in EOPS, I had to submit progress reports to show them my grades. That requirement kept me motivated and doing well in school.
