On Wednesday September 28th TRiO SSS presented their Stepping Stones to Success event. The event took place on the Finney Lawn and students were host to an inflatable obstacle course, brain teasers and campus resource booths. The Stepping Stones to Success event serves as a catalyst for students to participate; learning how to overcome and press through challenges which may stand in their way during their academic and professional careers. To participate in the obstacle course, students were instructed to race one another through the course, however, 1 student would have a delayed start time. The student with the delayed start time was instructed to still attempt to win the race. Although possible, the students found they had to work harder and push themselves further to win the race even though they were at an obvious disadvantage. Afterward it was explained to them that the same principle applies in class. If they begin falling behind they have to work harder, improve their study habits, and push themselves in order to be successful. In addition, they practiced their critical thinking skills through completing brain teasers and perused different department booths to learn about other services offered to them on campus. TRiO SSS would like to thank the following persons and departments for volunteering their time to aid in making this event a success: Roy Gilespie, Ben Wohldmann, the SAC, the Library, Counseling office, Career Services, the Student Ambassador program, Housing, and SGA.
