Current TRiO Students
2019-20 TRiO students: get started on the right foot! Review
our fall events calendar, set up your beginning of semester appointment, and
check out what’s coming soon to TRiO.
The TRiO lab is open on a walk-in basis to active TRiO participants. The TRiO lab serves as a study area and gathering space for TRiO events, and is also the main site for TRiO tutoring. Technology resources available for use in the TRiO lab include desktop computers, free printing for coursework, select textbooks and reference books, and calculators and other supplies. A rotating selection of snacks is also available in the TRiO lab for our students.
In order to use the TRiO lab, you must be an active TRiO student for the current school year, which means you have either had your beginning of semester advisor meeting or your TRiO intake meeting. Please sign in and out at the front desk when using the TRiO lab. If you were a TRiO student in a previous year, but have not done a beginning of semester meeting this year, please contact us at (217)353-2267 to reserve your place this year.
Retention concernsIf you are struggling to stay in school due to extenuating personal circumstances and/or academic challenges, you are encouraged to meet more frequently with your TRiO advisor.
Career advising TRiO advisors will work with you to help you determine your career path. We try and review your career plans at each advising meeting, but you are also welcome to come to us with specific concerns. TRiO advisors can direct you to career inventories and guide you as you determine your path. We will also work with you to utilize Career Cruising, a free online resource that assists in the process. TRiO tutors and advisors are available to review and discuss job applications, resumes, and cover letters.
If you plan to transfer to a four-year school and earn a bachelor's degree, TRiO is here to help. We try and review your transfer plans at each advising meeting, but you are also welcome to come to us with specific concerns. TRiO staff lead 2-4 college visits to Illinois schools each semester: at each college visit, students have the opportunity to meet with admissions advisors, hear from financial aid personnel, and take a tour of campus.
