Come Join Us for TRIO Week!

National TRIO Day is celebrated annually at the end of February and is a way for TRIO students to give back to the University as well as the community.

This year the Boise State TRIO Programs are hosting a TRIO week, which will consist of activities all week long that will culminate on Saturday with the TRIO Day Banquet. The activities are free and we encourage all students to participate! If you are a TRIO student this is a great way to give back, if you are not in TRIO this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about it while also having a great time.

Check out our TRIO Week page for the full schedule of events!
