POPS & Study Buddies


Leadership and Personal Skill Development Services

Preparing on the WSU Campus Purpose Sessions (POPS) – These seminars are held biweekly (refer to your activity calendar for location).

Students receive points for attendance at these sessions. Failure to attend regularly could affect their travel opportunities and participation in the summer component. Sessions begin at 9:00AM with breakfast, 9:30 AM UBMS begins with woo-hoo's for the week, grade check and brief programming or a presentation from the SEEDS volunteers; 10:30 AM the groups breakout for study buddy sessions; and 12:30 PM, the underclassmen are released while the upper class students (juniors & seniors) regroup for ACT prep.


The Study Buddies Program is intended to help students to master concepts worked on during school. Facilitators, hired from either the WSU or USD 259 Communities, host 1-hour study sessions, modeled after supplemental instruction workshops. Study Buddies Sessions are typically held on Saturdays during POPS sessions. There are some exceptions.
