The purpose of this study was to determine whether enrolled members of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate of the Lake Traverse Reservation who graduate from the Sisseton Wahpeton College have experienced impacts on their lives upon earning a degree. The study was a qualitative, descriptive case study that was intended to report the responses provided by the participants. The population chosen for this study were 20 enrolled members of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate who live and work on the Lake Traverse Reservation and who had graduated from the Sisseton Wahpeton College (SWC). The participants graduated from any degree or certificate program, were of any age, both male and female, and graduated at any time throughout the years the college has been in operation.
