Chula Vista Waterpark in Wisconsin Dells.

Do your students have questions about how to select the right graduate school for them?  Do they wonder how they will pay for their advanced degrees?  Have they encountered a few “bumps in the road” during their undergrad days and are afraid they may prevent them from getting into the grad school of their choice?
The answer to these questions and more will be addressed at the WAEOPP McNair/SSS Retreat!

Don Asher, the nationally recognized authority on the graduate school admissions process, will be conducting the retreat. The WAEOPP McNair/SSS Retreat will be held at the Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells, WI. 

The conference committee hopes to see you and your students in the Wisconsin Dells in September!
