What Students Have to Say about HEOP/Excel
"The HEOP/EXCEL program gave me the ability to have to the chance to go to college and do what I dreamed of and more, but what I thought I would not be able to do. The program has given me more than the financial support though, they have given me the support of a group right by if I need help with anything else or just need to be pointed into the right direction."
- Samantha Eklund, Junior, Psychology Major with Women's Studies and Music Minors
"My college experience has been the best experience I have had. It has changed my life. Nazareth's HEOP/Excel family supported me financially, and has guided me every step of the way. The summer program also helped me to be more aware of what college is like. I am grateful for the opportunity and I would never exchange my new Nazareth family for the world."
- Daliza Alvarez, Freshman, Psychology Major with Dance minor
"Being in the HEOP program has been a great experience. It builds a support base that makes school feel like a home away from home. If you were to move the 'E' in HEOP to the end you get the word HOPE, and that is what this program gives us."
