Tacoma Community College is truly a jewel among community institutions, defying any and all negative stereotypes. It is diverse in both opportunities as well as in the students who attend. When I attend class here, I can feel myself inching ever closer to my goals, and the college itself provides me with tangible support in reaching those aspirations.

TCC is in a great location and has a pretty wide variety of classes and programs. The office staff isn't very helpful when you are a returning student, but if you are persistent everything should work out just fine.
