UNION — USC Union’s Opportunity Scholars Program is designed to enhance the educational experience for first generation college students. The program provides academic and cultural support services to help adjust to college life. Networking opportunities, various workshops, academic counseling and tutoring are just some of the services that OSP provides.
USC Union’s new OSP director, Nazarene Rice-Edmonds, is eager to help the students succeed and get a higher education degree.
Nazarene, a native of Spartanburg, is a busy mother to six children yet brings a calm and friendly approach to work. She graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Business Administration from Strayer University, then went on to get her Master’s in Public Administration with a minor in Human Resource Management. Nazarene brings even more to the table with her retention skills, strong leadership and educational opportunity understanding.
When Nazarene is at home, she enjoys watching any Tyler Perry movies with her family and 8 month old Shih Tzu dog, Coco.
When asked what she liked about USC Union, Nazarene stated, “It is a small college and everyone just enjoys helping students any way possible in order to see them graduate. USC Union makes the students feel like family, not just a number.”
