Are you the first one in your family that will graduate from college or a university? Are you on financial aid, receiving a Pell Grant? If so, the TRiO program Student Support Services may be able to assist you in achieving your educational goals.

TRiO is a set of federally funded college and university based educational opportunity programs that motivate and support students from low-income and first-generation backgrounds.

Student Support Services (SSS) is located in the GSC room 250, and helps low-income and first generation students successfully begin and stay in college. Participants receive tutoring, academic advising, smaller classes in English, math, and study skills as well as field trips to in-state universities. The last evaluation of this program determined that SSS participants were more likely to remain enrolled in higher education, accrue more college credits, and earn higher grade point averages than similar students who did not receive such services. Interested individuals may stop by the GSC office, or visit for further information.


Carson Hoch is a sophomore at Snow College. He comes from West Jordan and had never been part of a newspaper or yearbook staff until coming to Snow. He is a business major and plans on going to Brigham Young University for the next step in his education. This is the first year Carson has been on Senior Staff for the Snowdrift as the Website Coordinator. Carson was inspired to join the newspaper because he’s always had a love for sports and wanted to get a glimpse of the journalism side. A dream of his is to get called at half time to shoot the half-court shot. He’s entered every game he’s been to, but has never been selected. Yet.
