Eagle Edge supports student success

The Office of Community Outreach is committed to assisting and retaining students who are the first in their families to attend college, who face financial difficulties or other challenges as they strive to continue their education, or who are members of communities under-represented at FGCU.

Our Eagle Edge program welcomes and guides promising students referred through partner organizations around Southwest Florida:

  • The Immokalee Foundation
  • Guadalupe Center
  • Nations Association Charities
  • Take Stock in Children
  • Quality Life Center
  • Florida SouthWestern State College
  • Eagle Transfer Scholarship Program

Eagle Edge empowers these students with information about academic programs, financial aid and other programs that can help them navigate the world of higher education, complete their degree and succeed after graduation. Through regular group meetings, specialized workshops and one-on-one mentoring, Eagle Edge participants learn essential techniques and strategies in areas such as these:

  • Productive study habits
  • Efficient time management
  • Critical thinking and decision making
  • Effective communication
  • Successful leadership
  • Professional networking and business etiquette
  • Life skills such as money management and cooking

As its name implies, Eagle Edge gives students the competitive advantage they need to succeed at FGCU and in life.

Please refer to your Eagle Edge contract for specific meeting times throughout the year.
