Welcome from the TCC Northwest President

Zarina BlankenbakerWelcome to TCC Northwest!

Whether you are new to college, planning to transfer to a university, returning to gain career certification or improving your skills, we recognize that you have many options when deciding to pursue higher education and are grateful that you chose our campus. I speak confidently for the administration, faculty and staff when I say that we are proud that you are a student on our campus.

You are what makes TCC Northwest the "Campus of Choice." For over 40 years, Northwest Campus has focused on putting our students first. We provide a student-centered environment and focus our College resources on student learning, student development and student success.

Whether you come to us from across the street or across the globe, our commitment to quality academic transfer, workforce development and lifelong learning courses will help make a positive difference in your life. In addition to offering academic transfer courses, TCC Northwest is home to a number of nationally recognized technical programs including the Fire Service Training Center, the Criminal Justice Training Center, and the Center of Excellence for Aviation, Transportation and Logistics (located at Alliance Airport). Strong partnerships with local business and industry ensure that graduates from our technical programs are prepared for successful careers within their chosen fields of study.

While on TCC Northwest, I hope you will make the most of your time by taking advantage of all of the wonderful opportunities and services available to you. If you have ideas or suggestions to help make our campus an even better place, we welcome your input. Please feel free to email or visit the Student Activities Office on the first floor of the WSTU building to sign up to participate in a Student Focus Group session.

I thank you for allowing the TCC Northwest family to be a part of your educational journey. I wish you much success as you work toward your future, and I encourage you to continue to stay focused on your educational goal. Persist until you complete.
