Welcome to TMC!

Week of Welcome (WOW)

We are excited to come alongside you as you begin your time as a TMC student.  Week of Welcome (WOW) is intentionally designed to help make your transition to TMC a little easier.  This program provides all incoming students with information about academics, student activities, student services, residence life, international programs, and much more.

During this time, you will have the opportunity to engage with administrators, faculty, staff, and student leaders (SLS).  SLS will be available throughout the week to answer any questions you may have.

All new students are required to attend WOW. WOW begins Thursday, August 20th for international students and Saturday, August 22nd for domestic students. The Parent Orientation is on Saturday, August 22nd at 6:30pm. Classes begin Tuesday, September 1st.
