The Crimson Tour in Pink - The Breast Cancer Awareness Edition

To assist the Class of 2017 with final decision-making, ND TRiO utilized fall break for a quick college tour. While visiting IUPUI, students toured the campus and engaged with student admission representatives to discuss majors, college life, and social organizations. Students also received a special presentation from a fellow TRiO Program – IUPUI SSS, where students were able to speak with former ND TRiO alumni and learn more about the TRiO pipeline.  

To complete all things“IU,”seniors toured IU-Bloomington, a campus that is considered one of the world’s most beautiful. After viewing classrooms, greenery, and historic buildings spread across the 1,933 acre campus, students received an informational, dined among Hoosier collegians, and learned about TRiO partner, IU-Bloomington’s Groups Scholars Program. “As an alum of the University, it is always exciting to be a part of this experience [with the students]. To know the history, see its growth, and to witness the impact of Groups, this tour is always a favorite for me,” says TS Advisor, James Desits.

In special recognition of those that have lost, endured, or survived the battle with breast cancer, TS Advisor, Matt Adams pledged/gathered donations for the American Cancer Society. In support of his efforts, male participants and staff of ND TRiO wore pink to express their support for continued research, but most importantly, to acknowledge the strength of breast cancer survivors, patients, and those that lost loved ones to cancer.
