TRIO Student Support Services


TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) is a federally funded program aimed to increase the academic potential of participants and are provided at no cost to eligible students. The goal of SSS is to increase retention and graduation rates of college students who demonstrate academic need and who are either first-generation, and/or low income, and/or have a documented disability. This goal is based upon the belief that all students, regardless of age, family background, learning style, or presence of a disability, should have equal opportunity to reach their full personal, academic and career potential.

I finally verified my account to see what's going on. Happy Holidays to everyone.
This semester was probably one of the hardest semester in my life. Between my personal life and school life, I knew that I would fail. Although I couldn’t always make it to certain workshops and events, I am grateful that I had a safe space to work and wind down in between classes. I am incredibly appreciative of this program and can’t wait to get more involved next semester.
Ayanna, I'm sorry to hear that this has been a rough semester. Please remember, You are not in this alone. Whatever problem or concern you have, we'll work through it and figure it out together. That's what we are here for. So, I definitely look forward to seeing your smiling face around the office next semester. — Donnia Turner Donnia Turner on December 19, 2019

I swear if I didn’t find this office and meet everybody I probably would’ve have dropped out after the summer
Chioke, you are a part of the TRIO family. So, yes I'm glad we found each other. I'm also glad that you didn't give up after the semester. Otherwise, you wouldn't have had one the BEST semesters yet!!!! Congrats on an awesome semester! — Donnia Turner Donnia Turner on December 19, 2019

Thanks for ALL that you do. I could not have had a successful Fall semester without ALL of the trio staff!
