TRIO supported me with an advisor that guided me. My advisor also helped me in my first language (Spanish). I got assistance to fill out important forms like FAFSA, or scholarships. I am grateful for all the help that I got from TRIO. I was lost when I decided to study, but they offered me resources that helped me to succeed. They also helped me to make new friends. I didn’t have problems with the language. My advisor was always asking me if I needed help, or if I was feeling good. They are my family! I would never forget this amazing experience. Thank you, TRIO.

The TRIO program at WWCC impacted my life extensively in the best ways! I was able to use a tremendous amount of resources and most of all, have time with advisors. I would have been lost without the help of the TRIO group at WWCC. I was always able to feel comfortable communicating with others and developed new skills while attending the activities and TRIO classes. I could not be more grateful for what the program gave me during my time at WWCC and the skills that I took from my time – they have helped me tremendously!

I participated in the Student Support Services (TRIO) and I cannot be more glad that I did. My TRIO advisor, sat down with me many, many times throughout my first year simply to try and narrow down different subject areas I enjoyed and to look at potential career paths. We took personality tests and strength tests that could help me discover different paths. Because of this, I was able to make the decision of pursuing a business degree. My advisor walked me through how to complete the FAFSA application, which I now feel comfortable doing on my own, as well as taught me how to search for scholarships that I could qualify for. Thanks to TRIO and my advisor, I have now graduated with an Associate in Business degree. Had it not been for TRIO, I truly believe that navigating through college on my own would have caused me to drop out.
