    TPE was nothing short of a life changing experience.

    This was the only time and place that I could simulaneously pursue career opportunities while meeting amazing people from all over the country.

    I was challenged to perform in a professional format. I was also encouraged to begin building a professional network within the field of Student Affairs.

    I have not seen an equivalent for the opportunity that TPE afforded me. I strongly recommend the experience to all graduate students!
