TRIO is a program funded by the U.S. Department of Education, and is one of the more than 800 similar programs nationwide whose purpose is to assist undergraduate students toward graduation from college.

What we do depends in part on what you need to keep yourself enrolled, advised, counseled, funded and successful as an Eastern student. Our services provide a mix of support designed to help you enhance your academic and personal development. The staff will work with you on an individual or small group basis to provide the following:
  • Tutoring: Group study halls and individual tutoring available.   
  • Academic Advising and Counseling: A counselor is on staff to address academic and career planning.   
  • Financial Aid   
  • Financial Literacy Workshops: One hour workshops are offered throughout the semester over various topics to help ensure college success.   
  • Transfer Assistance: Unsure about transferring? We set up campus tours each semester.   
  • Culture: Each semester at least one cultural trip/event is offered (ballet, museum, leadership conference, etc.)
