Many EOP Students are taking advantage of the Study Abroad Program

Our 2011 Theme: "Let Each Become All That He Is Capable Of Being"

From the Director's Desk

Welcome back for the fall 2011 semester. The entire EOP/AIM staff and I are delighted to welcome you back to the University for another eventfilled semester, and are excited about the many programs and initiatives we will offer to you this year. We encourage you take advantage of the many resources available to you through the program, and recommend that you visit the office and the program's website often to remain abreast of the numerous workshops, seminars, tutorial sessions, study groups, activities, experiential learning opportunities and special celebrations we will offer to support your continued success. I am pleased to welcome the newest members of the EOP/AIM family to Stony Brook University. This fall, ten very accomplished students from various colleges and universities across New York State have entered Stony Brook University as EOP/AIM transfer students. Additionally, one-hundred thirty-five enthusiastic students have entered the University as first-time, full-time students after completing a very challenging EOP/AIM Pre-Freshman Summer Academy. We are as proud of our new students as we are of our "seasoned" EOP/AIM family members, and we look forward to working closely with all of you throughout your educational journey at Stony Brook University. Please take the time to review the scholarship and internship information listed in this edition of the Target, and to read about some of the achievements of your fellow EOP/AIM students. As we all endeavor to make this a most rewarding semester, I encourage you to incorporate our EOP/AIM core values of academic excellence, integrity, civic engagement, moral leadership, and personal and social responsibility into all that you do. Best wishes to all of you for a productive and fulfilling academic year. Sincerely,

REACH Workshops

(Restoring Effective Attitudes and Changing Habits)

REACH (Restoring Effective Attitudes and Changing Habits) is a series of six sessions that provides for the development of strategies, skills, and techniques critical in achieving academic success. Designed for EOP students who encountered academic difficulties or feel their grades are not reflective of their abilities, participants assess strengths and weakness, develop time management and study skills, and utilize available resources. Students acquire a set of tools based on the book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens that addresses issues and behaviors that negatively impact academics. Students who participate and attend ALL meetings will receive assistance and support with the petitioning process to the Committee on Academic Standing and Appeals, if necessary.

Please contact Loretta Mulle (631) 632-1141([email protected]) for further information.

A New Culture for a New Student Association

"Civic Engagement"

Of all the clubs I or anyone of the executive board members could have chosen to be apart for this past academic school year, we chose to be part of the EOP Student Association. This unique organization which is a branch of the EOP department is the governing body for all EOP students and its mission is to enhance the social, academic and political standing of the program. Every club has some element of our mission statement in their constitution but what makes the EOP Program unique is that it gave me access to attend Stony Brook University. I along with all the present executive board members have a special place in our heart for the program and an obligation to give back. This is what prompted us to change the culture of the Student Association into an organization that would be more active, vocal and visible than it had been in past years. We were motivated by the desire to have other students demonstrate as much passion for EOP as we have. Our goals right off the back was very ambitious as we wanted to do a lot of social events, campus tours and general programming. Not having the funding of USG was not a hindrance to us at all as we had the backing of Cheryl Hamilton whenever we needed it. Our statement of Purpose is what set the tone right off the back. It states, "In order to enhance the social, academic and political standing of the Educational Opportunity Program, we the students of the EOP/AIM Student Association Executive Board, give our service, in the hopes of helping others like ourselves". The culture of the Student Association changed as we made it a focal point to serve our fellow EOP students much like our counselors serve us. To prove to the legislatures at Albany that the EOP Program is a force to be reckoned with, EOP had to have things outside of the summer program that we were known for. That is where we would step in. The Student Association established that in bringing back the Midnight Breakfast who many have said is better than the general campus midnight breakfast. We also had a High Initiative during winter break. Perhaps our biggest change in culture would have to be the inclusion of nonEOP students or what we call "regular admits". We have come to notice that nonEOP students can be just as supportive as EOP students themselves. Everyone on the board including the bulk of freshmen we included this year, did an amazing job. A leader is only as strong as his followers and our group had much harmony and synchronization. There may have been some bumps in the road but we were able to overcome it to win club of the month award in March. At last, the word was getting out about the EOP Student Association. This year was only the act of laying the foundation down. I am confident that the organization will continue to grow. The Student Association is very important because everyone in EOP is family and we are working to make sure that this family continues to socialize and interact as well as succeed in life. We are the glue that holds the EOP general body together and it is certainly something that we do not shy away from. ~ Pierre M. Albert, EOP/SA President, 2010-2011

My Study Abroad Experience

Diana Pena~EOP Senior, Study Abroad to Russia

"Every time I thought about studying abroad I always pictured France, Italy or Spain; but never in a million years did I ever think I'd go to Russia. This was such an enriching experience; I got to experience the White Nights which is 24 hours of daylight as well as a totally different language, food, routine and environment. Traveling to Russia, with my Best friend at that, is an experience I will never forget and highly recommend to everyone."

Fanny Shao EOP /Stony Brook University Graduate `11

"I did a study abroad in Japan for the summer of 2009. It was such a blast, getting to know the people in the group, the students in our host school, and my host family! I loved the class excursions we would go on after school, and the times my host family and I spent getting to know each other. It was fun and interesting to experience a culture so different from the one I've been raised in. Our group was also there on the rare instance that Mount Fuji was visible, which was awesome."

Study Abroad to Japan

Mukid Khan~EOP Senior, Study Abroad to Japan

"I went to Japan for my study abroad experience, and this adventure allowed me to discover a new land as well as myself. I lived with a Japanese host family which totally immersed me into the culture. I discovered my passion for photography while I was in Japan enjoying all its gorgeous sights and sounds. My favorite highlight of the trip was when Mt. Fuji was visible for the first time since my stay, since it is often cloudy during the summer. I hiked up local Mt. Kanuki to see breathtaking Fuji-san as it stood gleaming a distance away."

My Student Exchange Experience

Hui Liang~EOP/Stony Brook University Graduate `11, Study Abroad to Tanzania

"Going to Tanzania was definitely one the best decisions I have ever made; my experience there was nothing but amazing and memorable. The culture there was fascinating, the food was delicious, and the adventures were exhilarating, but the most rewarding part of all I felt was the cultural exchange. I realized that while we were fascinated by everything and everyone there, they were equally fascinated with us; and so everyday was a mutual learning experience. I'm extremely grateful for all the experiences I had on this trip and hope some day I will get to go again."

Louis Dupiton~EOP Senior, Study Abroad to Japan

"My study abroad program in Mishima, Japan was the signal greatest experience in my college career. The hospitality of the Japanese people was like nothing I've ever experienced. During the program, I lived with an amazing host family that opened their home and their hearts to me. I remember lights of Tokyo, the beauty of the sakura trees, the tastes of all weird Japanese sweet, the tastes of my favorite food (katsu Don), and the comfort of my home away from home. As I think back about my experience, I can only smile and wish it never ended."

Chantilly Berrios~EOP Senior, Study Abroad to South Korea

NEW! SB Guardian System

To activate go to: http://www.stonybrook.edu/commcms/ emergency/guardian.html

Panic Call Mode With this feature, users can program the Guardian phone number into a designated speed dial, allowing a one touch call that will automatically notify University Police. If the user's phone utilizes smart technology and has GPS capability, the panic call will also indicate the caller's location on campus, thereby facilitating a faster response by police or other emergency responders. Precautionary Timer Mode With this feature users can set a time that coincides with the time they expect to travel from one location on campus to another. If the caller arrives safely and deactivates their timer, the University Police Department will never receive notification that a timer was ever set. If the user does not deactivate their timer they will receive a text message from the system three minutes prior to its expiration and a phone call one minute prior to its expiration to alert them to deactivate their timer. If the user does not reach their destination, or is otherwise detained, the timer will automatically trigger a panic call to University Police who will then be able to respond to their location. Users also have the option of adding a voice note that will be sent to University Police in the event their timer elapses.
