Educational Opportunity Fund Program
Chi Alpha Epsilon Honor Society
The Educational Opportunity Fund Program (EOF) of William Paterson University is a charter member of the Chi Alpha Epsilon National Honor Society. Since 1995, Chi Alpha Epsilon serves as the national honor society for high achieving students in specialized programs. Among the sixty-eight chapters of Chi Alpha Epsilon throughout the United States, eight chapters are at colleges and universities in the state of New Jersey. EOF students who maintain a 3.0 grade point average for two or more consecutive semesters are eligible for induction.
Images is a network of William Paterson University women established to nurture supportive bonds, explore cultural similarities and differences, and empower and create meaningful programs centered around women's interests. Images also engages members in insightful discussion pertaining to acclimation, self-esteem, leadership, personal empowerment, and social issues.
Brother to Brother
"I am my brother's keeper, and together we will rise."
Brother to Brother (B2B) is a dynamic organization specifically established to assist members to excel academically, socially, culturally, intellectually, and professionally at the University and in the community. Brother to Brother is comprised of male students striving for academic excellence. B2B members also make a commitment to plan and implement programs that benefit the University community at large. Members embrace the principles of leadership, brotherhood, and community service. New members are inducted every spring at a special ceremony attended by University administrators, staff and administrators.
"The Exchange" is a newsletter publication that is created and developed by EOF students. An E.F student is appointed as the Editor-in-Chief. It is a medium for the students to express their literary skills, to provide information that is pertinent to student success, and to recognize academic excellence in the EOF Program. The Exchange is published each semester of the academic year.
Men’s and Women’s Student Conferences
The EOF program conducts two student conferences every spring consisting of a student success theme, a keynote speaker and various complementary workshops. The EOF program divides the conferences by gender in order to meet and promote the specific needs of these respective communities. The conferences are usually day long events hosted on a Saturday in April.
Annual Awards Banquet and Recognition of Student Success
Each year the EOF Program recognizes and awards students who have outstanding academic achievement throughout the year. A special senior awards banquet recognizes student achievement in academics, leadership, and service. The purpose of the awards banquet is to foster, encourage and acknowledge student success.
