Eighteen Moyers GEAR UP students recently toured East Central University in Ada, OK. Students began the tour with a welcome informational session in the Bill S. Cole University Center. Recruiters Shundin Bohan, and Grace Tomlin began with a PowerPoint presentation with plenty of opportunities for questions for students. There were several topics covered that included: financial aid, admission requirements, majors offered, and student life.
Following the welcome session, students were led across campus for a tour that included The Hallie Brown for Fine Arts Building, Lanoy Education Building, ECU Bookstore, the Time Capsule, Crabtree Honor Plaza and Tiger Fountain, and Linscheid Library. After the tour, students enjoyed lunch in Taft Cafeteria.
The field trip was sponsored by Eastern Oklahoma State College GEAR UP. Eastern received a $17 million federal GEAR UP grant in 2017 and will serve more than 3,000 students in 39 area schools for seven years.
