TRiO Educational Talent Search and TRiO Upward Bound
On Thursday October 2nd, 77 TRIO Educational Talent Search students attended the Welcome Back TRIO college tours. We arrived at the College of Idaho in the morning, with breakfast waiting for us. The students marveled at the array of breakfast foods that the college had to offer. Many students even went back for seconds. After given an admission presentation our sophomores, juniors and seniors were given the opportunity to take advantage of the campus tour. Our younger students participated in a Multicultural Center presentation with director Arnold Hernandez. During this time there was a C of I student panel and our students took the opportunity to ask some great questions about campus life at The College of Idaho.
After the College of Idaho our students ate lunch at Boise State University and were greeted by Boise State University mentors. The mentors sat and talked with our students about campus life and various programs of study. Our students then participated in a financial literacy workshop were they learned about needs and wants in allocating their monies. Everyone then toured Boise State’s beautiful campus before we departed for the buses home.
