Sanoma State VisitOn Friday, September 26, TRiO Student Support Services took 25 students for a campus visit to Sonoma State University. Students enjoyed a comprehensive tour of the campus led by admission representatives and student liaisons. Among the unique components of this tour, students were provided an opportunity to visit transfer residential learning commons, walk around the lake on campus where students actually fish, and to partake in lunch on campus in the dining hall with other SSU students. As well, current undergraduates provided a panel presentations that interweaved personal anecdotes and insights related to their undergraduate college experiences. This information profoundly resonated with our students, many of whom intimated their interest in the institution and the opportunity to explore other campuses before cultivating their list of prospective four-year institutions.

Please Note: TRiO is now accepting New Student Applications for the 2014-2015 school year. Please refer students who may benefit from TRiO services while spaces are still available. Returning students who wish to continue their TRiO services are advised to complete a Returning TRiO Student Form Enrollment Center of Building 5, and to schedule their first counseling appointment for the fall semester.

For more information, please contact Judith Cheung—at or call 650-738-4144, located in Building 5.
