November TRiO Campus Tours

TRiO Participants Begin Scavenger Hunt on Auburn Campus

TRiO Student Support Services participants traveled to Auburn University’s main campus on Friday, November 4th. The day began with a map, campus information, and a sense of direction for a scavenger hunt around the campus. The handout provided valuable insights on Auburn’s history and traditions, scholarships, important transfer information, and career opportunities. Students were divided into small groups to become more familiar with Auburn’s campus and its programs. Participants especially enjoyed the hands on learning experiences during the individual and team assignments.

Trojan Day Campus Tour of Troy University

Troy University provided a fun-filled, informative day for participants on Friday, October 21, 2016. College divisions, clubs and organizations, departmental areas, admissions, financial aid, and others set up booths to welcome and inform students about their areas of expertise. Participants especially enjoyed the student tour guides whose enthusiasm and knowledge helped make their decision to transfer to Troy much easier. The mighty Trojan football game was an added bonus and lunch was a hit. Go Trojans!
