The more you GIVE to the program, the more you will GET from the program!

There are so many great ways to get involved in TRIO SSS! The first thing you should have already done is watched/attended Orientation, and then scheduled an intake with your advisor. After that, you are free to check out books, come to tutoring, & sign up for some of the great trips and experiences that SSS offers! Have lunch with us on Wednesday! Then attend our first college tour, first workshop, and TSA will have another meeting this Friday as well. Then Saturday, come help out at the Baylor Football game. So many great ways to get involved!
