"HEOP gave me the opportunity to attend my top choice for undergrad, which is something that I never thought would be possible. Since then, the program has acted as a home base for me on campus. HEOP counselors are always working to connect students with whatever resources they might need, whether it be academic, financial, or otherwise. Overall, I can honestly say that my college experience was much easier because of this support."
