A Personal Note from Sully:First, I would like to congratulate you on taking the first step to explore the fascinating field of technology! I am here to help you navigate through the process of becoming a technology student at TSC. I remember when I first started college, it was a little overwhelming! Filling out forms, determining the best way to pay for college, what courses to register for, navigating the schedule, and developing time-management skills made me a little nervous. However, I mostly remember being very excited to become a first-generation college student, I just knew I was going to make my family proud! I was once where you are at now, wondering if a degree and industry certifications could really qualify me for employment opportunities, if the time and money would be worth it, and willing to explore the opportunities and options for courses. For me, the journey has been more than worth it, and in this ever-changing field the journey continues, keeping each day fresh and exciting!
I am committed to answering all questions you have about the technology courses we offer at TSC. I am open to communication methods, by phone, email, web conferencing (Zoom/WebEx), or face-to-face (following recommended COVID protocols, of course!) and I will schedule time with you to explore options and personalize a plan. If you were interested in a different program, no worries! I will connect you with the person in charge of your program of interest.
I am so excited to meet you and happy you have decided to explore Trinidad State!
