TRIO students attend graduate conference at Wisconsin Dells

Metropolitan State University’s TRIO program sponsored nine students to attend the annual Wisconsin Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel (WAEOPP) graduate conference at Chula Vista in Wisconsin Dells, Sept. 25–26. The TRIO program covered the cost of registration, lodging, transportation and some meals.

Participating students learned valuable information such as how to fund graduate school and write a powerful statement of purpose. They heard from keynote speaker Donald Asher, author of numerous, bestselling guidebooks on graduate admissions. The conference was instrumental in their educational journey as they plan to continue their studies beyond their undergraduate degree.

TRIO Student Support Services is a federally-funded program committed to serving first generation, limited income and disabled students enrolled at Metropolitan State University as degree seeking undergraduate students. Certain eligibility requirements and criteria must be met to participate in programming. For more information visit this link.
