Who is TRIO SSS for?

“Being a part of this program gave me the chance to meet other students who are in a similar boat and striving for the same goals that I am in life.”
- Dakota Smith, TRIO Alum
Civil Engineering Major

“I love how the program has tutors. I would not have the grade that I have in math if it wasn’t for my awesome tutor. I would not have gotten a tutor if TRIO Director Scott Robertson would not have talked me into it. Because as first, I felt ashamed because I feel like I should know this stuff. So, it was a self-conscious barrier that I had to get over.”
-McKenzie Simpson, Senior
Forensic Investigation Major
