On February 28, 1986, Congress officially recognized National TRiO Day to increase support and awareness of TRiO programs across the United States. TRiO programs are funded through the United States who meet one or more of the eligibility criteria:
- First generation
- Documented disability
According to Chadron State College TRiO Director Jen Schaer, there are approximately 160 CSC students who participate in the program. This program has served hundreds of CSC students with one-on-one counseling services, advising, and schedule building assistance.
Each month, TRiO hosts educational and social events for the students involved in the program. National TRiO day was celebrated on February 22nd with games, pizza, and prizes. Upcoming events include:
- March 16 Bowling
- March 20 Paint Night
- March 27 Resume Writing
If you have any questions or know a student interested in joining TRiO, please contact Jen Schaer at 308.432.6069 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
