Are you True Blue?

With inspiration from recent awesome events, such as Paint the Zoo Blue, TCC is encouraging students, faculty and staff to wear blue on Fridays. Even though we don't have a sports team, we can still have school spirit by sporting blue on Fridays. To watch a video that promotes True Blue, click here.

Giving back on Day of Caring

TCC employees volunteered to paint, clean, pull weeds, sweep and more during the Day of Caring held in Tulsa on Friday. The Tulsa Area United Way organizes this annual event, and TCC provides full-time employees with eight hours of community service leave to participate in either this event or another community service event of their choosing. Enjoy the photos!

Remember: TCC is tobacco free

I have been on all of the TCC campuses since fall classes have begun, and I want to remind everyone that TCC is tobacco free. I saw TCC Campus Police talking to people on the campuses who weren't following the policy, and I saw students on campus wearing electronic cigarettes, or e-cigs, which are also prohibited.

TCC became tobacco free in 2012 after Gov. Mary Fallin signed an Executive Order to make all state-owned and state-leased properties tobacco free. Consequently, TCC Board of Regents supported the governor's order by approving a tobacco-free policy on all TCC locations.

To report violations of the policy, contact TCC Campus Police at 918-595-8888.
