EOP/ACE Student Opportunities and Leadership (S.O.A.L.) Group


Mission Statement

We, the members of the Student Opportunities And Leadership Group, believe that cultural, recreational, artistic, and educational outings are an integral part of a liberal arts education. It is vital to expose students to things outside their individual frames of reference in order to promote personal growth and understanding in a global society. Retention rates are favorably affected when students are involved in extracurricular activities and are given the opportunity to bond with both staff and peers. It is our goal to seek new experiences and opportunities to offer to our students, and to provide them with the tools to contribute to an ever changing world.

A message from the

S.O.A.L. Group Advisor

As advisor of the S.O.A.L. Group I look forward to working with the Freshman Class Officers (FCOs) and all members to present events, workshops, and social activities designed to foster the academic, social and cultural growth of all EOP/ACE students. The S.O.A.L. Group is most successful when students actively participate. Bring your ideas and suggestions to the Freshman Class Officers or come to our meetings every other Thursday, 2:30pm in the EOP/ACE Advisory Center, Alumni Hall 101K. Contact Colleen at 436-3095 for dates.
