"Grad Talk" Programs Planned With Clemson, Charleston Southern

March 27, 2012 at 11:14 am

Opportunity Network continues to host the Grad Talk  series with a number of graduate school programs in South Carolina. Grad Talk is a free forum opportunity open to all students, faculty, and staff who plan to seek a Master or Doctoral degree in the near or distant future. Opportunity Network has connected with more than six graduate schools in South Carolina to participate in the series. The purpose for the Grad Talk series is to provide the Upstate community with a valuable experience to receive feedback from the professionals that are directly involved at graduate institutions and to help them realize, with preparation and accurate information, they can make an educated decision regarding their pursuit toward a graduate degree.

The next Grad Talk will be hosted in person on Friday, April 6from 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. in Campus Life Center 309 with Clemson University.  Light refreshments will be provided.

The last Grad Talk for the semester will be hosted via video conference with Charleston Southern University in  the Health Education Complex Rm. 2037 on Friday, April 13 from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

Opportunity Network is a Student Support Services program, made possible by a TRiO grant, funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The mission is to assist eligible students to stay in college until they successfully complete a baccalaureate degree. Opportunity Network eases the transition from high school to college by providing support students often need. The program offers a wide variety of free services and supplemental programs to help students achieve their academic, career and personal goals, while confronting the challenges of completing a college degree. The program is designed to assist students who are first generation college students, students with document disabilities, and students who meet certain income guidelines.
