What our TRIO SSS Scholars are saying about the program...

The program has helped me keep on track not only academically but emotionally as well. The resources provided has allowed me to seek opportunities that I normally would not have dared to "try". Overall, TRIO has been life changing.
They provide a place for me to really be a Coug. Without them, my transfer to WSU would not have gone as smoothly as it did.
