Happy New Year! Everyone cheered, thankful to see another year. With excitement all around me, I began to think. What will I do different in 2011? Refusing to make another list of resolutions that wouldn't last a month. What is my purpose? I asked myself. Yes I'm a wife and stay at home mom of two, which is the best job in the world. But I want more and this is the year it would happen. I'm going to college! It had been almost 10 years since high school graduation. Uncertain about where I would attend, but knowing that I wanted to go was the first step. My ideal college had to offer me opportunity to be successful, lead me into a rewarding career as a registered nurse, and last but not least enhance a better life for my children. "From here go anywhere", the TCC commercial on TV caught my attention. That same day I decided that TCC was the college I would attend and I applied online right away. Filled with excitement I told everyone I was attending school in August. I even encouraged some of my family and friends to attend TCC. I am proud to say I am here at TCC to make a positive change in my life and encourage others to do the same.
Choosing TCC was going to give me the opportunity to be successful. I reviewed the courses and the time it would take for a degree. I was certain that my decision was the right one. This college offers instructional programs that you can get a degree in two years. The instructors will prepare me for hands on experience. Being taught hands on experience will prepare me for entering the workplace. Or I could transfer my credits to a four year baccalaureate institution and receive a bachelor's degree.
