Thank you all so very much and I wish everyone the entire best." - L.A.
"It’s not only helped me with school, but with my mental health. I knew I could come in and have safe place to be myself, to just be when the rest of the world felt like it was falling apart." - G.A.
"TRIO SSS was amazing! They helped me stay on track and complete my degree in two years. I especially liked that there was a dedicated counselor available, they had awesome tutors, and overall the staff were extremely helpful." -K.D.
"TRIO SSS has been a remarkable experience. From providing me a job to being an extended family trio has been truly amazing. Everyone in TRIO is amazing and truly care about success. And TRIO takes care of all your needs from printing to tutoring and we have some along the way. I tell everyone there are two programs I recommend on this campus, EOPS AND TRIO SSS. EOPS helps with financial needs and TRIO SSS helps with the rest." - D.D.
"TRIO SSS, was by far the best thing that I could have been apart of while attending WLAC. I found the staff to be extremely welcoming, knowledgeable, kind, and helpful in every aspect- my only regret is not joining sooner. TRIO SSS offers great tutors, and services that are insightful and useful for real world problems e.g: putting together your resume, applying for scholarships, etc. I hope that more people become aware of this wonderful program, and join as it is extremely important and beneficial." -K.H.
"Joining TRIO SSS was something I was not expecting to do when returning to college but I'm very glad I did, I felt supported knowing there was a group of people looking out for me compared to seeing a counselor once and that they see hundreds of students in a day. It's nice having that support system there if you need and and that they know what they're talking about to get you ahead of the game. Even though this semester didn't go as planned with our current situation, I still felt a part of the group and didn't feel like I was left behind. I still felt like I had the support from TRIO through the emails and the option to have online meetings. I'm very glad to have been able to find out about TRIO and join because I feel like I actually have guidance on how to transfer out into a 4-year university with confidence." -S.S.
"TRIO has helped me focus in on what classes I need to take to complete my degree here at WLAC. They have encouraged me to face me fears of taking a math class so to their tutoring and support. It was a tough semester and I could not have made it through without TRIO. Amazing support! I am very happy with the diligence of the leaders of the program." - M.W.
