Week of 11/16-11/20

There is SO much to be THANKFUL for!

Life is not perfect, but there is always, always, always something to be thankful for! So today, think about those things that you DO have (instead of what you don't) and remember that we in SSS are so thankful that you are a part of the TRIO family. If you are struggling in classes, worried about your finals, not sure of your spring schedule or just want to chat please come on by our office!
