Sean Saunders Accounting Graduate at TRCC

“The classes at Three Rivers are much smaller, and the professors treat you like a person not a number. They have all worked in their fields, and they aren’t teaching to make a living, they’re teaching to make a difference.”
Sean Saunders, Accounting Career, A.S. ’19
