SIUC Fall Season


TRiO Student Support Services (SSS) at SIU assists a select group of students in adjusting to college life and successfully pursuing an undergraduate degree. SSS utilizes a holistic approach in providing support services for students by focusing on academic, social, and cultural aspects of the college experience.

Through academic counseling, advice with course selection, individualized tutoring, workshops, career exploration, and social and cultural activities, SSS helps students build a solid foundation for success.
