(ROSENBERG, Texas) – Texas State Technical College recently celebrated summer graduates with a virtual commencement that livestreamed on Facebook. Friends and family commented online with joy and excitement about the momentous occasion as they wished their loved ones all the best on their journeys after college.
Now TSTC is ready to safely welcome back students as the fall semester begins.
Campus enrollment executive Georgeann Calzada shared a message for new students, and she also gave advice on how they can maximize their experience at TSTC.
“Welcome to the TSTC family,” she said. “Make sure that you ask questions and check your TSTC emails regularly. Get involved in Student Life and SkillsUSA. You will not regret these opportunities.”
Associate Provost Bryan Bowling acknowledged that this semester will be vital for students.
“The rest of this year will be a monumental, course-correcting year for our students,” he said. “Not due to COVID-19, but to them beginning their journeys toward life-changing careers.”
He credited the dedicated instructors and staff at TSTC for making these opportunities possible.
“They (instructors and staff) heartily believe in the mission that we not only ‘place Texans in great-aying jobs,’ but ‘we change lives,’” he said. “Just as our students were incentivized to enroll in TSTC to land a great job in the industry of their choice, so too are we heavily incentivized to prepare them accordingly. Their success is our success.”
TSTC is strictly following its set of COVID-19 safety guidelines, including mandatory multilayered facial coverings, directional signs throughout the campus and social distancing. To learn more about TSTC’s coronavirus precautions, visit tstc.edu/coronavirus.
