We Understand the Balancing Act

TRCC knows that attending college as an adult is a balancing act, so they give you what you need to succeed: classes that fit your schedule, especially evening and online options, along with one-on-one support from faculty.

—Kristina Beaulieu ’19, Environmental Specialist at Docko, Inc.

The same week she graduated with her associate degree, Kristina started work in her dream field: Environmental Engineering. Here’s what she appreciated most about TRCC:

Flexibility:
“When I attended TRCC, I had 2 young children and worked a full-time job. It was definitely a balancing act, but TRCC made it possible. They offer more scheduling options with evening and online classes, which made it easier to fit in.”

 

Support:
“The professors are supportive and understanding. They know we have a life outside of college, so they’re readily available to meet us for 1-on-1 support. My advisor knew what I was going through because she did the same thing.”

Career & Life Success:
“I loved the environmental engineering program. I took one class and knew it was the right field. Because the classes are smaller, I never felt overwhelmed or lost in the material. The professors know us personally and we get a lot of one-on-one support.”

 

“The week I graduated with my A.S. in Environmental Engineering Technology, I started work at Docko as an Environmental Specialist. I want to use my education to help change things for the better. I believe that small steps can make a big difference.”
