How Did I Get Here and Where Did the Time Go?
Associate Director, Equal Opportunity Program,
The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) began at CSU, Chico 45 years ago. EOP Associate Director Chris Malone has been with the program for 34 of those years. With humor and passion, he tells his story. Malone describes his childhood in South Central Los Angeles and how, as a student at UCLA, he drove to Chico to spend a weekend with a high school friend and decided to transfer to Chico State to play football. But Malone got more from Chico State than football – he graduated with a degree in psychology, did graduate work, and ended up mentoring hundreds of other first-generation college students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
