College Tours - Tours of local colleges and universities occur throughout the semester.
Counseling & Advising - Our qualified staff counselors are always here to help students with their academic, transfer, career,
and personal concerns.
Educational Plan - Developing an Educational Plan is the first step you can take to being successful
in your academic goals. With the assistance of a TRIO counselor, students are provided
with a semester-by-semester breakdown of the courses needed to achieve their graduation
and/or transfer goals. This process helps students to stay focused and eliminates
enrollment into unnecessary classes.
Workshops, Campus Events, and Community Events - In collaboration with EOPS, MESA and STEM, TRIO provides workshops to give students
opportunities to overcome many academic and personal obstacles. Our topics range from
Setting Academic Goals to Overcoming Test Anxiety. TRIO students are also invited
and encouraged to attend events on- and off-campus for cultural enrichment.
Sample Newsletter - A great source of information describing our monthly activities (e.g. scholarships,
awards, workshops, recognition, avoiding scams, and more...) or check out the Archives of past issues.
Scholarship and Career Search Assistance - The Scholarship and Career Search Assistance Program consists of teaching students
how and where to find information about scholarships and careers on the Internet.
TRIO is continually updating scholarship options for all our students. In addition
to providing information on specific scholarships, we also work with students to support
them in successfully completing scholarship applications and essays.
Student Study Center - We strive to fulfill our mission of having an "open door policy." The TRIO Program
Office is open four (4) days a week for student use. Our students refer to the Student
Office as a "home-away-from-home community."
