School Hosts TCC Tour Trip for Seniors

Harrison Le, Staff Writer

Designed to provide seniors a look into college, the school is hosting a free Tarrant County College (TCC) tour Nov. 2.

“The tour will show them (seniors) the environment of the classrooms,” TCC Access Coordinator Becky Bielinski said. “(They) see the setup and design of the campus and the amenities like the cafeteria, library and the bookstore.”

This particular tour will be at the southeast campus, one of six located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“I am interested in a tour more than just to skip school,” senior Vu Pham said. “It’s a great low-cost option that I can seriously consider and take a look at. The fact you get free t-shirts and a lunch is even better.”

Students may sign up in the counselors’ office and will be given a permission slip to return.

“TCC (offers) lower cost tuition compared to other schools,” Bielinski said. “The college credit you would get (at TCC) would be accepted (at) UTA or UT Austin so you get a really good deal. The southeast campus is also a close proximity to students and if they worked close, it would be beneficial as well.”

Senior Christopher Green said looking at TCC would be following in his family’s footsteps.

“My sister went there,” he said. “It’s a good school, they taught her well and not to mention they have a lot of classes available. She wants to be a photographer and they have classes for that. I want to (go) when I get out of high school.”
