Our annual gathering is a fantastic opportunity to enrich our campus community, share valuable information for the upcoming semester, and reignite the passion for education that resides in us all. The morning's activities will be held under numerous shade structures on our beautiful plaza, creating an open-air atmosphere conducive to connection and collaboration.

After a break for to-go lunches, we’ll move inside for keynote speaker, Dr. John Francis. Dr. Francis's groundbreaking concepts, coupled with his compassionate approach, have enriched our comprehension of mental health, cultivating spaces that promote acceptance and provide assistance. He is the author of Planetwalker: 22 Years of Walking, 17 Years of Silence. A special thank you goes out to Counseling for sponsoring Dr. Francis' visit to TMCC.

In the afternoon, we will again bring you the now-infamous, Feel the Love Karaoke Pub!
