On October 2nd, Project Strive TRiO hosted an event (The Game of College Life) to educate their students on money management. The game started in the Project Strive Living Room where the students received their financial aid, collected their refund and paid their tuition. After this was completed, they were required to visit eight different stations that were located in the library.
At each station, the students had the choice of rolling dice or drawing a card to determine their scenario (similar to the Life board game). If the students ran out of money during the game, they had the option of applying for a loan at the local bank (Sonja Dressel’s office). The final station was the graduation/end of semester celebration – wraps, chips, soda and water were provided.
Upcoming Project Strive events include:
- November 13 Sarah Pierce
- November 15 Meet the Artist
- November 27 Stress Relief
- November 29 Senior Seminar
- December 11 Pet Therapy
Project Strive TRiO is located in Room 112 located on the lower level of the Library Learning Commons.
