Each year, the AOP first-year class has been invited to dinner at the president’s house. This year is particularly special because the AOP class of 2022 had the honor of being a part of President Harris’ first AOP reception. In a year of many shared first experiences, the AOP family had a chance to get to know President Harris and his family better as well as other members of the senior administration. The president’s house has a rich history, which President Harris detailed while explaining how his own journey brought him to Union College. The support felt during this reception is a testament to the strength and value of opportunity programs and our community’s commitment to making education accessible and lifelong.
