It also a great time to meet and interact with your fellow TRIO Scholars. If you need a place to study, or meet a group for class the TRIO Breakfasts are great for you.

We are alternating between Wednesday and Thursday each week so that we can make sure to have an open time at least twice a month. So, bring a healthy appetite, any questions or concerns you may have, and a positive attitude to the TRIO Offices!
