"Opportunity Programs has not only given me the networks, skills, and guidance for my personal and academic growth; they have provided a basis for the rigorous and competitive environments beyond Hamilton. Who would have thought that in two years I would have traveled accross the hemisphere from Rampart Boulevard? Opportunity Programs. The women who work in this office provide the best support and access to resources at Hamilton. They work endlessly to ensure that I have a home away from home. They expect the best from me. I confide wholeheartedly in them and in my friends who went through the summer program. While it may be difficult and irritable to spend weeks in an academic environment, the outcomes Opportunity Programs provides can never be taken away from me."
