Do you 'bleed' blue or white?

No, TCC doesn't have a sports team, but you wouldn't know it from the Grad Blitz tailgate party that employees came to on Saturday afternoon. People whom I've seen sit quietly behind a desk were doing cheers and sporting TCC gear all in an effort to get more current students to file for graduation.

The tailgate party was a kickoff event for the phone calls that TCC employee volunteers will make on Tuesday and Thursday evenings this week to remind current students approaching degree completion that they need to see an academic advisor.

Why? Well, some students do not realize that they need to actually file for graduation. They think that if they finish the recommended courses in their degree plan, an associate degree will arrive in the mailbox. This simply isn't the case. If you are finishing your degree plan this fall, you have to visit an academic advisor no later than Oct. 26 in order to file for graduation. If you plan to finish your degree plan in the spring, you have to visit an academic advisor no later than the last Friday in March.
