New this past year to Act 101/EOP was their Act Now for Success! workshop series. Twice a month Act 101 launched different workshops covering general education requirements, financial aid, student clubs, declaring a major and much more.
To start it off the seminar Act 101/EOP brought back alumni Victoria Wylie, who talked to the students about motivations strategies, as well as incorporating self-esteem and personal development.
“I learned a lot from her presentation,” said Nazeer Curry, an Act 101/EOP program assistant. “She has lupus and has not let that stop her from chasing her dreams. She is the definition of a hard worker and strategic thinker.”
According to Curry, through this new after-hours program current Act 101/EOP students will be able to meet Act 101 alumni like Wylie and pick their brains about how to succeed after college.
