Help Yourself Succeed with TCC Workshops

Students LearningMaking it through college and choosing a future career can oftentimes seem overwhelming; there’s so much work and so many possibilities, how am I supposed to manage it all and still have a life?

Fortunately, TCC is there to help.  Over the course of the semester, TCC campuses host student success-driven events that can help you manage your stress, learn about the world around you, and prepare you for a career in the “real world.”

We are here to make it easier for you to keep track by periodically giving you a heads up.  Check here regularly on Mondays to see what’s brewing and give yourself the upper hand!
