I can't say enough about On Point and their staff! They assisted my daughter with travel, books, and guidance during a very crucial period of adjustment. My daughter's freshman year came with some unexpected tradegies with the deaths of her grandfather,classmate, and good friend. On Point not only provided the academic support but also expressed the personal care that was much needed during this very difficult time. Sam Rowser is a great leader that is committed to On Point being a outstanding resource for our community. I hope On Point is around for many generations to come, continuing the exceptional support and guidance for our students pursing a college education!

On Point for College in Syracuse, NY is the best thing going for Syracuse Youth that are trying to move forward. They assist families and youth to get ready, get into, drop off and pick up our children so that they can keep their family connections while going to school. My son and I thank them so very much for all that they have done for our family and we would recommend this program to any family that meets their criteria exspecially low income families. We need you and thank you.

On Point for College has helped me in many different ways. It is a place that I can go whenever I'm in need or have questions about anything. Coming from such a small urban area, I didn't think that it was possible for me to attend a university but this organization allowed me to know that I could. Through On point for College I was able to obtain financial aid and was supported through every decision that I made. I am a first hand witness of the amazing things that this organization is capable of and I know that they will continue with their success.

On Point for College, Inc. has helped me to overcome many personal obstacles on my path to becoming a professional woman. As a recent grad from SUNY Plattsburgh and alumni of the program, I feel I owe the staff and advisers much gratitude for encouraging me to utilize the interpersonal skills I have to advance personally and into career-oriented growth. The members of this organization have supported me by providing funding, transportation, housing, mentoring, and whatever else I have needed in order to become a more well-rounded student with a diverse background. The motivation they have instilled in me has captivated my interest in public relations. This organization as a whole works very efficiently and I believe that On Point for College, Inc. plays an integral role into shaping young people into the leaders they are destined to be.
