SLIDESHOW: South Seattle College's TRIO program wins a $10,000 IKEA make over

Swedish furniture giant IKEA made a very special award to South Seattle College last week.

The college was the winner of a $10,000 furniture and office makeover. The TRIO/Upward Bound program was awarded IKEA’s “Life Improvement Challenge” which in addition to the products, mean that IKEA designers came out and worked with the staff there to complete the project. TRIO operates out of one of the older buildings on campus, Rainier Hall and a makeover was a way to revitalize the mission and serve students more effectively.
