You will always find a wide variety of on-campus activities and events each week during the semester. These include art exhibits, film screenings, panel discussions, conferences, workshops, and social events, just to name a few. Particular administrative offices, academic departments, research centers, and/or student organizations sponsor and organize on-campus activities. Our student population is very diverse and includes international students, scholars and faculty from over 75 countries. TC combines a large number of part-time and full-time students who are very active in professional education circles and either commute to or live on campus. There are a variety of student services and organizations at TC designed to support students’ programs of study, provide professional development opportunities, foster community and celebrate diversity.
