"The EOF/MAP program allowed me to enter the collegiate atmosphere and guided me to a life of volunteerism and leadership. I was actively involved at Rowan both outside of the EOF/MAP Department and within. Working three summers with EOF/MAP program, and also as a Residental Assistant, and a Peer Referral and Orientation Staff member were the most advantageous experiences I gained. Each helped me with my leadership skills, creative thinking, and very important, patience. EOF/MAP supported me the whole way to graduation and beyond. To this day I still have their support and consider them an extended family that helped develop the man that I have become today."

"There are not enough words to explain how much EOF/MAP means to me.  “Extension of Family,” as many of us like to call it, is the most accurate expression for EOF/MAP.  My EOF/MAP family, as I like to call my fellow peers and EOF/MAP counselors, are my inspiration and motivation.  EOF/MAP has helped me find the true leader within myself.  It has helped me become a mentor for others and make a difference in my community.   Being accepted into the EOF/MAP program was the best opportunity I was ever given- it gave me the opportunity to devote myself to higher education.  EOF/MAP represents an opportunity to change and the determination to strive for success.

Thanks to EOF/MAP, I can make my family and friends proud and I can prove the people that doubted me wrong. EOF/MAP showed me the light of excellence and the darkness of mediocrity.  Without EOF/MAP, the world would miss out on all of my skills and talents that I developed during  my college years.  Without EOF/MAP, I could not make a difference and conquer my dreams!!!"
