The purpose of this TRiO Student Success Class is to provide eligible students with the academic support, tools, and resources that promote a successful transition into Evergreen. Over the course of the fall quarter, students will actively participate in seminars, reflection, workshops, and writing that support the process of each student’s academic development in their reading, writing, and communication skills.

Required readings and writing prompts promote growth in higher order thinking, such as critically responding to texts, analyzing and synthesizing sources of information while applying knowledge to tackle new concepts and ideas presented in their full-time academic programs. Students will receive two credits in reflective writing for the successful completion of this course.
