Tell your friends about TRIO

                       Hello TRIO Achiever,

As an active TRIO member I know you maintain a busy schedule and you meet a lot of people around campus. You can help spread the word about TRIO among your fellow students by describing to them the benefits TRIO membership has to offer, such as tutoring and mentoring, one-to-one advising, financial aid assistance and advanced registration. Get your friends on the bandwagon. Tell them about the benefits of joining TRIO.

                       Have a great week,

                      Therese Hlavin, Director
                      TRIO Student Support Services

First Hackerspace great fun

The debut of Hackerspace was, by all accounts, great fun. The order of the day was decorating sugar skulls to commemorate El Día de los Muertos. Don't forget to join us next Friday and every Friday at 2:00 pm outside LIB 412 for Hackerspace, because it's your space to enjoy. TRIO would like to thank Artist Maria Calderon for facilitating the inaugural event.
