High school seniors in Educational Talent Search have been invited to WKU’s campus for an event on Wednesday (April 20). ETS serves students in Allen County, Butler County, Bowling Green, Caverna, Cumberland County, Edmonson County, Hart County, Logan County, Metcalfe County, Monroe County and Warren County schools.
At the event, TRIO seniors will have the opportunity to ask questions of current WKU students and professors in panel discussions, and will hear presentations from important campus services, including Housing, Student Activities and the Academic Advising and Retention Center. Seniors will also receive certificates for participating in Educational Talent Search and a graduation gift during a short ceremony at Gary Ransdell Hall. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon.
TRIO programs target student populations that are under-represented in postsecondary education, and events like this one help to get students acquainted with college campuses and prepared for the academic and personal growth they will experience by pursuing a postsecondary degree.
TRIO is a federally funded program that identifies and assists qualified students in middle school, high school, as well as adult and veteran learners in college enrollment. These programs are free to all participants. For information, contact the TRIO office in Jones-Jaggers Hall on WKU’s campus at 270-745-4400 or visit www.wku.edu/trio
