Meet TMCC on Your Home Turf

We know, we know... it’s August and technically that means that it’s still summer and it’s not time yet to start thinking about shorter days, colder weather and... going back to school. However, the semester is starting very soon,  and it’s never too early to start thinking about your future—it’ll be here before you know it.

We understand, though, that it’s not always convenient to visit us at our main Dandini Campus. So... we’re inviting you to visit various parts of the Reno/Sparks area with our fun and informative Recruitment Access and Center team!

What’s In It For You?

In addition to offering some cool TMCC swag, our team can answer anything you’ve ever wanted to know about the College.  If you’re not sure of what to ask, here are some ideas to spark a conversation that could ignite positive changes in your life:

  • How can I apply to the College?
  • How can I enroll in the classes I want? 
  • Who do I need to speak to about applying for scholarships and financial aid?
  • Is parking free? (Pssst... the answer is yes!)

We know it’s hard to step out of summer, but by learning more about how you can pursue your academic and professional dreams, you might be taking your first steps across a graduation stage. 

Where We Can Connect

There’s a handful of opportunities to learn more about TMCC and what we have to offer. We’ve picked the best ones happening throughout the month of August. We hope we’ll cross paths with you soon—whether it’s at a shopping spree, a soccer game or over a paddling of rubber duckies. 

  • August 9–11 at Meadowood Mall. Stop, Shop and Enroll with our RAC team as we occupy a part of Reno’s Meadowood Mall. While you might have just stopped by for a new pair of shoes, you might leave with a class or two that will have you taking the first step to realizing your professional dreams. 
  • August 18 at Wingfield Park for the annual Duck Race Festival.  Even if you’re more interested in the outcome of the race, be sure to duck by our booth where you can learn more about TMCC. And, if you’re interested in helping homeless pets, you might be interested in hearing about our Veterinarian Technician program that has provided care to lost and injured animals brought to Washoe County Regional Animal Services (WCRAS) for over twelve years.
  • August 24 at Wingfield Park for the Aloha Festival. If you are interested in other cultures, stop by the Reno Aloha festival to learn more about cultures of Pacific Island people... and visit our booth to learn more about our Anthropology, Communication, Foreign Language and Humanities classes that can add to your worldly perspective. 
  • August 31 at the Greater Nevada Field for an 1868 FC Game. Are you a soccer fan? Support TMCC Athletics by attending the 1868 game, which will feature our student-athletes for the half-time show. Ticket sales will help to support the college. The TMCC team (and not just our amazing soccer teams) will be available to answer any questions you may have about the college, and what we have to offer.
