(HARLINGEN, Texas) – Texas State Technical College is ready to welcome students back to campus for the spring 2021 semester.

Students, faculty and some staff will return to campus on Monday, January 11, on a limited basis and continue to follow TSTC’s coronavirus safety guidelines.

Most courses will be taught with a combination of online classes and in-person labs.

The safety protocols include mandatory face masks while on campus, social distancing, and designated entrance and exit locations.

Provost Cledia Hernandez is eager to welcome students back.

“As the new year gets started, a very common tradition is setting new resolutions,” she said. “TSTC is dedicated to helping students reach their goals. We have dedicated tools and resources that are available to students in order to make these resolutions happen.”

Associate Provost Jean Lashbrook added that 2020 may have changed our attitudes, but students should not be deterred from pursuing their educational goals.

“Last year changed us all,” she said. “It changed some of us more than others, but students should not let that change them in a negative way. Think positive, dream positive, and go after the great things in your life that you want to achieve.”

Hernandez said that there are resources at TSTC to help students through their college journey.

“We will help our students finish strong,”  she said. “Tutoring services, dedicated faculty, and career coaches are ready to refine our students’ skills to get them the job they have been waiting for.”

TSTC is dedicated to helping enhance the Texas workforce by equipping students with the skills needed to succeed in some of the most in-demand careers.
