TRIO Student Support Services is dedicated to building a network between students, campus and community by utilizing the values of faith, authenticity and teamwork.
“Through TRIO I have gained insight into the wonderful world around me. I have been able to see and experience things that I would have never imagined possible. Being able to go to events like a ballet or the Holocaust Museum or even getting to see a Broadway play has helped me broaden my horizons and get to fully experience what Houston has to offer. By stepping out of my comfort zone and expanding my horizons culturally, I have begun to see that we all strive to be the best we can be. I highly encourage any TRIO member to participate in the cultural events and gain insight of the world around us.”
