UTICA N.Y.- On Point for College held their celebration dinner Thursday evening at the Delta Hotel in downtown Utica.
On Point for College helps local students get into college and stay in college.
Thursday night, it was all about students from the Utica area who have done well, and achieved so much through college over the last several years.
Utica area students have attended SUNY Brockport, SUNY Cortland, SUNY Poly, Herkimer College, Mohawk Valley Community College and many other schools in New York State through On Point for College.
Samuel Rowser, the Executive Director of On Point for College says that: “Many of our students who want to go to college we don't tell them where to go. But these are all different colleges that our students attend. We have over 800 students from the Utica area that are attending college across New York State and primarily attending SUNY colleges. So, these are just a few of the colleges that they go to."
On Point for College was founded in 1999 and is dedicated to developing programs to help students get help for college with housing deposits, scholarships, books, and many college needs.
