What is TRiO and why do we celebrate it?

TRiO is a group of eight programs federally funded through the Department of Education. TRiO programs were the first national college access and retention programs in the U.S. Their outreach and student service programs not only address financial barriers but also social and cultural barriers associated with education in America.

Join SSS to celebrate TRiO February 21st-23rd!

21st-23rd: Service Project
23rd: SSS Group Picture and Cultural Presentation with Mack Eugenio.
*More details to come…watch for flyers around the SSS.
