Educational Opportunity Program summer students make history

The EOP Binghamton Enrichment Program (BEP)—is a multi-week summer residential academic skills-building and preparation program—welcomed a class of 139 new students who made history in more ways than one. First, for the first time, all of the classes students took were offered for credit. Students had the opportunity to earn up to 8 credits and complete two General Education requirements toward their Binghamton degrees. Second, every one of the 139 students in the program earned the full 8 credits this summer. And third, they did it with a cumulative GPA of 3.42 − the highest-ever in the program.
