Liberal Arts and Sciences, A.A..

Overview
Alycia Ziegler

“I was a “C” student in
high school and not at all interested in academics, but when I came to TRCC
something in me changed. I credit the faculty here: they know how to push students beyond their limitations and how to inspire them to learn.” Alycia went on to earn her bachelor’s degree from UCONN and is earning her Master’s Degree. She is now Three Rivers own Student Program Director.
