TRiO Alumni Association
As a Club at Humboldt State University, we believe it is important to help, guide, and mentor TRiO students currently enrolled in High School, while at the same time building relationships with the community as well as in our TRiO group. "TRIO began as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson's War on Poverty. The Educational Opportunity Act of 1964 established an experimental program known as Upward Bound. Then, in 1965, the Higher Education Act created Talent Search. Finally, another program, Special Services for Disadvantaged Students (later known as Student Support Services), was launched in 1968. Together, this “trio” of federally-funded programs encouraged access to higher education for low-income students."
About the Club
If you are a student at HSU, who was once involved with Talent Search,AVID, Upward Bound, Gear Up, or any type of TRiO Program, you are the perfect candidate for our club.
We are NOT exclusive, however…. anyone may join!
