Metropolitan College TC

The Metropolitan College Themed Community brings together students who work third shift at UPS as part of the Metropolitan College program.

The Metropolitan College Community will provide students with an opportunity to engage with each other and with the campus community. Students will have an opportunity to share advice regarding time management, organization, and work life balance while attending school and working third shift within UPS. Students will also be able to form relationships with other students within Metropolitan College who are faced with similar challenges that include managing sleep schedules and transportation to UPS. Metropolitan College staff members will also offer programming relevant to their needs, including onsite agreement signing as well as the Career and Academic Planning Program. This community is housed in the University Tower Apartments (UTA). Learn more about UTA here.
