Sept. 19, 2018 LA GRANDE, Ore. – Now in its third year at Eastern Oregon University, TRIO Student Support Services offers a weeklong orientation program that prepares incoming students for college life.
Between Sept. 17 and 21, all 25 participating students will get to know campus and La Grande, while making meaningful connections with their new peers. This year’s program takes students to Morgan Lake, the La Grande Farmer’s Market and Art Center East. They engage in experiential learning through group discussions, films, panels with returning students, yoga and scavenger hunts.
“Students learn a lot, have a lot of fun, and are ready to hit the ground running when classes start the following week,” said Sarah Fischer, a TRIO program specialist at EOU.
