Student Testimonials


I am very pleased with  TRiO SSS. TRiO makes sure that I succeed in my academics. I feel very comfortable in the environment. The people who greet you when I sign in are also nice. Without TRiO my grades and attendance would not be what it is.  D. Cavanaugh c/o 2018, Pre-Major


I was a nontraditional student and the first one to go to college in my family for three generations. I came to TRiO and they helped me in every way possible to succeed.”  E. Agapitos c/o 2013, Interdisciplinary Studies


I enjoyed TRiO’s easy going atmosphere. Especially because of the high stress and [competitive] nature of program. Trio SSS  was and is a much more relaxed and collaborative setting.    - Comment from Annual Survey AY14

The people here are filled with knowledge, love and positivity, which makes for a warm learning environment. I am grateful to be a part of this program. D. Hale c/o 2016, Theatre


TRiO has been a tremendous help to me in deciding what actions to take as far as my career and life goals. The Rocketing 2 Success Workshops, offering an array of solutions to issues that students face, are beneficial and informational. I would recommend that  students take advantage of it, and all the other resources offered through this office. N. Gilbert c/o 2017, Interdisciplinary Studies


I would say TRiO is has helped sharpened my math skills and helped me answer questions I didn't understand. The  TRiO is kind very helpful and I'm glad that TRiO exists. A. Harris c/o 2015, Film/Video


It has been a 40 year journey to realize my dreams and aspirations of obtaining a college degree. Because of personal trials and tribulations, it actually took becoming angry with myself to achieve the goal of returning to school and eventually receiving my BA degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with an concentration in Political Science in the Fall of 2015. The TRiO program has been a blessing for me with its excellent staff of advisers who mentor, advise, and consulted me in all the areas most needed by students. The TRiO program has workshops, tutoring sessions, and events gear and catered towards the success of each individual student. The TRiO has provided me with the educational tools to be successful.     S. Hill c/o 2016, Interdisciplinary Studies


TRiO is always there to help and they have tutoring for many different subjects. Even if you go to them for only one class they will email you about your other classes with how well you are doing since they contact your professors. A. Nelson c/o 2017, Communications
