The TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) program at OSU has helped many students in pursuing their educational goals through academic support, specialized advising, and leadership opportunities. TRIO is a federally funded college opportunity program that serves students from traditionally underrepresented groups including first generation, low-income, and/or students with documented disabilities.
Decisions students make during college are based on their own identity and experiences. These choices will affect all aspects of their lives, including interests and values, and career paths they choose. This course is designed to ease transition from college to career by providing skills and information necessary to move into a successful career upon graduation. Learning about resources and career decision-making process will enrich job search experiences and help achieve career goals. Course will create greater self-awareness of how identities (values, experiences, etc.) impact how they will move forward. Greater self-awareness will lead to greater self-authorship for their future.
