ACE students joined in and learned! TRiO Day - 2015

Saturday, February 21 was National TRiO Day, so ACE scholars traveled to a conference at Northern Illinois University to celebrate. The group learned a lot about the history and importance of TRiO while listening to inspiring stories from TRiO staff, students, and alumni, all of whom attributed their success to the support they received in TRiO programs. ACE Scholars also attended an informative graduate school preparation workshop and brainstormed ideas for becoming more involved with high school TRiO students near Loyola University Chicago. Just as importantly, the scholars and staff grew closer to one another and had fun!

Their bio's and introductory videos can be found by clicking the "MCAT Tutors - now available" heading above. They are available for appointments, which you can schedule via WC Online today!
