The Metropolitan College TC brings together students who work third shift at UPS as part of the Metropolitan College program. This residential community provides students the opportunity to engage with each other and with the campus community. Students are able to share advice regarding time management, organization, and work-life balance while attending school and working third shift within UPS. Students are also 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 offer programming relevant to their needs, including onsite agreement signing as well as the Career and Academic Planning Program.
