BEOC’s College Connections Initiative is committed to helping students and community members learn about and gain access to the college experience.
The goal of College Connections Initiative is to assist BEOC students and the community in becoming familiar with the college application process, selecting the appropriate college and major, financing and scholarship opportunities, and becoming familiar with the overall college environment. Students have the opportunity to attend college tours to local CUNY, SUNY and private colleges, as well as attending the annual college fair at BEOC.
BEOC College Connections Advisors are also available to facilitate resource fairs, seminars, and workshops to community organizations on college readiness and access. All College Connections and College Access services at BEOC are free to students and the community. For upcoming events, click here.
