  • Jun-19-2011 I am a current student here

    TCC's campus is beautiful, and extremely well maintained. Student Life hosts a number of events all through-out the year for free for students. Including celebrity guest speakers (this year we had actress/poet Amber Tamblyn), comedians, musicians, and events like the annual Pow Wow, as well as the Laua. TCC has an extremely diverse yet connected atmosphere that is really difficult to describe, but wonderful to be a part of.
