Cultural Enrichment and Graduate School Activities

Cultural and Academic Enrichment

TRiO SSS students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of cultural and academic enrichment activities both on and off campus. Students who do participate in off-campus events must complete a student travel liability form.

TRiO SSS-sponsored activities have included:

  • CATS at TPAC
  • The Quest for Immortality at The Frist Center
  • The Lion King at TPAC
  • Miss Marple's Dinner Theatre in Nashville, TN
  • Bye, Bye Birdie at The Roxy
  • The Bessie Smith Story at The Roxy
  • Washington, DC
  • Riverdance at TPAC
  • SAEOPP/McNair Research Scholars Conference
  • WICKED at TPAC
  • Etiquette Dinner
  • Chicago, IL
  • Blue Man Group at TPAC

TRiO SSS students are provided information about upcoming events through monthly mailings and Facebook.

For TRiO SSS students to participate in an off-campus event sponsored and funded by TRiO SSS, the student must come to EL 337 to sign up during the designated time period. The student must have a completed student travel liability form on file for the current academic year and most events have limited seating.

Graduate School Visitations

TRiO SSS students have the opportunity to visit graduate schools located geographically near APSU. In the past, students have visited graduate schools at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, University of Memphis, Tennessee State University, University of TN @ Chattanooga and Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green. Students had the opportunity to tour the campus with a qualified campus guide, meet with a representative from the graduate school, enjoy the student flow and activities of the university center, and visit resource centers/museums unique to the individual campus.

For TRiO SSS students to participate in a graduate school visitation that is announced in a regular monthly mailing, the students must come to EL 337 to sign up during the designated time period and the student must have a completed student travel liability form on file for the current academic year.

In addition students are invited to make individual requests for a campus visitation to the Academic Counselor. If there is adequate funding and an appropriate timeframe to arrange an individual campus visitation, the TRiO SSS staff will assist the student with the arrangements and provide transportation.
