Our scholars are superstars with unique talents and strengths! It is rewarding to witness their growth over time. No matter what the challenge they faced, their resiliency to bounce back has guided them to become stronger individuals in the competitive university.

I am excited to see all the TRIO Scholars come in and rock all the challenges that the last year and a half has brought to our door! I know that nothing is easy right now and I am just super happy to get to help support the students and the program as we try to make life get back to as “normal” as possible, making sure the students have access to the resources they need to be successful at UC Davis. Let’s go, Aggies!

Having the opportunity to be a TRiO Peer Advisor, I want to continue passing down the academic and emotional support and positivity that I experienced as a TRiO Scholar. As a first-generation Chicana student, I want to connect with students of diverse backgrounds to create excellence within minorities. I believe that educational resources are important for the undergraduate experience here at UC Davis.

  • Green Group

As a TRiO Scholar, I have received much support from my own peer advisors, from the program advisor and from the coordinator along my own journey at UC Davis. I have always felt welcomed in the TRiO space and have always felt accepted into their family since the orientation. For these reasons, I am very excited to give back to the program and help other fellow scholars in their journey to success at UC Davis and beyond their education.

  • Blue Group

As a TRiO Scholar, I am very grateful that I have the additional support at the very beginning of my college career. I cannot imagine where I would be today without the guidance from my peer advisors, tutoring services, and other resources. My goal is to provide the same support I have gotten from the program to my students and assist them to achieve their academic goals.
