Norco College School of Social and Behavioral Sciences

Diaz, a first-generation college student, will be transferring to the University of California, Riverside, in the fall. She aspires to pursue a career in law.

She credits the EOPS program counselors for helping her stay on track, guiding her through the transfer process, and earning her degree.

“Meeting with counselors and tutoring were the resources I used to help me successfully complete college,” said Diaz.

She recalls struggling with low motivation when classes transitioned to remote learning last March. Despite feeling unmotivated, she made it a point to stick to a routine and managed to finish strong.
