News and research
Armed with purple balloons, a candy bouquet, a cutout of Willie the Wildcat, and a speaker blasting the "Wabash Cannonball," the Scholarship Patrol brought purple pride to shocked students and gleeful parents.
Campus life
During the month of February, Student Support Services and Upward Bound are hosting a variety of events to bring awareness to TRiO programs and to honor those that have been and are currently involved.
Lindquist is attending the University of Kansas as a second semester law student, but got her start in the Upward Bound program on the Polytechnic Campus.
