On behalf of the management, faculty, and staff at Tunxis Community College, I want to welcome and thank you for considering Tunxis Community College as the place to pursue your education.
During the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our lives in countless ways. It has created tremendous uncertainty and forced us all to rethink the way we live, work, and learn.
While the recent health crisis has created a new normal, our community of dedicated faculty and staff continues to come together to support our students and the educational mission of the college. The health and safety of our students and employees remains a top priority; as a result of our Phase 3 reopening plans, implemented last fall and maintained this spring, Tunxis Community College continues to host a limited number of faculty and staff on campus to help teach and mentor our students enrolled in online and on-ground courses.
Despite the challenges that still exist, there are numerous benefits to being a Tunxis student. We provide a diverse student body with a high quality educational experience in a very supportive teaching and learning environment. We proudly offer students low tuition, smaller classes, personalized attention, access to technology and online learning, as well as opportunities to learn skills that prepare graduates for the workforce, high-demand jobs, and lifelong learning.
Regardless of your educational journey, Tunxis is the right place to learn, grow, and flourish. Many of our students earn a degree or certificate that transfers to the Connecticut State Universities, and other private institutions, where they often go on to earn additional credentials. Tunxis also helps develop future leaders. Many of our students find their voice by completing courses in a variety of academic disciplines, getting involved in many of our student led clubs, programs, and events, and utilizing many of the free student-centered services and resources.
As we continue to celebrate the college’s 50th Anniversary, as well as the 20th year of its satellite facility Tunxis@Bristol, and its service to the community, I encourage you to utilize the resources on our website and see how we can help you with becoming a part of the college’s next 50 years.
I look forward to working with you and wish you all a very safe, productive, and successful spring semester.
Darryl Reome, Ed.D.
