Student Support Services encourages participants to excel academically, while at the same time exploring their educational options after graduation.  SSS graduate school tours are designed to allow students the opportunity to learn more about the graduate programs they are interested in applying to.  SSS believes that exposing students to several university campuses when making their decision ensures a better match between the university and student.
