In the rush to get to class on time, we sometimes don't take the safest route in crossing the street. But darting across a busy highway or street without using the crosswalk just is not safe. It is important to cross the street in the designated pedestrian walkways at all TCC campuses, especially at TCC's Metro Campus. I am on the campuses a lot, and I cringe every time I see someone walk across a street with cars zooming toward them. Yikes!
Yes, it takes some time and more effort to go to the crosswalk, but it's worth it! That's my public service announcement for the day.

As we all know, life can sometimes interrupt our plans to finish college. We start all excited and starry-eyed, dreaming of the future. But, life happens. Complete College America is an initiative to help and encourage people to finish those college degrees and certificates, and Oklahoma is one of the 29-member Alliance of States that has pledged to make college completion a top priority.
Have you ever had to pause your education because of one reason or another? What encouraged you to return to college and finish?
