Student Life [?]
- Student Activities
Involvement in Student Activities programs compliments the academic program and enhances your college experience.
Preparing for the future is important, and it's something Student Activities at TTC likes to help you learn to do. There's more to life than the classroom or the job... there's learning to work with people as a group or individually, developing social and professional skills, experiencing new and different cultural events, and getting involved in leisure and recreational events.
Opportunities for personal and professional growth include:
Student Organizations, Student Cabinet, Student Publications, and Student Activities programs.
Enrich your learning experience by participating in one of 40 TTC student organizations. These organizations offer academic, professional and community activities. Student and organization achievements are recognized annually at the Awards Day Ceremony.
TTC's Awards Program is held at the end of the Spring Semester to recognize both the academic and leadership accomplishments of outstanding students and student organizations.

Transition Support [?]
- Welcome to Orientation Services
In support of the Student Services Division's mission of encouraging student success, the Orientation Services Office provides services that assist students in achieving both their academic and developmental goals. Through a comprehensive orientation program, we encourage campus involvement, academic success, and student retention. Our aim is to integrate new students into campus life while easing the transitions and stresses associated with starting college.
There are two ways to complete the TTC Orientation process:
1. In-person Orientation: This is offered on all three campuses on a walk-in basis, and is available after you have been accepted to TTC and have taken any applicable placement tests. The hours for each campus are listed in the yellow box on the right side of this page. Please arrive at least an hour before closing time, and expect the orientation process to take around an hour to complete.
2. Online Orientation: This is available if you have received your Student ID number in the mail from Admissions and would like to go through the orientation process on the computer instead of in-person. Simply click on the "Online Orientation" link at the top of the yellow box on this page, and you will be directed to enter your Student ID number in order to begin the orientation. After you have completed the Online Orientation process, you will enter your telephone number and an Orientation Leader will contact you in order to assign your academic advisor and answer any questions you may have.
