The new year is bringing some changes to a Syracuse organization that helps underprivileged youth get into college and succeed afterward.  On Point for College is moving out of its long-time Catholic Charities Home …and into Onondaga Commons, the former Rural Metro building closer to downtown.  Executive Director Sam Rowser is seeing quite a bit of growth from its beginnings 16 years ago.
