The TRiO Program Helps Students Adjust

Student support services (a.k.a. TRiO) provides individualized services in areas such as financial assistance, academic coaching, personal mentoring, access to laptops and more. Through workshops that target student needs such as test anxiety, note-taking, goal-setting and others, a student’s transition to college life is made more comfortable. Our success is measured by student preparation for either a post-baccalaureate education or a career.
