Benefits and ServicesPersonal and Academic Counseling
Each TRIO student plans for his or her academic success with an academic
specialist. In a friendly and caring environment, scholars learn to identify
areas in which they need to improve and use campus services to reach their
academic goals. Students team with staff members to coordinate assistance from
other resources on campus.
Study skills offered through the program help TRIO students develop learning
skills in areas such as time management, organizational skills, note taking,
test preparation, memorization and textbook reading.
TRIO students work with qualified tutor-mentors who provide content tutoring
in writing, mathematics and computer skills, as well as support the studentsí
other academic, career and personal growth goals.
TRIO students are paired with a faculty tutor-mentor who helps the student become acclimated to the college environment. Mentors also assist students with navigating their academic career, addressing academic challenges, and offer guidance on balancing their home, work and school life.
Use of Computer Lab
TRIO students have access to the TRIO Student Support Services Program computer lab to do homework and improve computer skills. TRIO students use on-line financial aid applications and other computer software and can work on writing assignments, computer assignments and workshops, and access email and the internet.
TRIO students interested in transferring to a four-year institution
have the opportunity to take field trips for college exploration and receive
assistance with admissions and financial aid.

TRIO students have the opportunity to participate in numerous
educational, cultural and service activities throughout the academic year.
