Stories of Success
From Columbia Law School to the high peaks of Nepal to the faculty of the University of Toronto, Tompkins Cortland Community College students and alums succeed in ways many of them never imagined before attending the College.
And the Foundation plays an essential role in their success. Whether through the direct support of scholarships, the development of innovative academic programs and initiatives like Farm to Bistro, or through the support of technology development and professional development, the Foundation provides essential support in student success.
Connecting the College
Alums who want to connect with the College and other alums can either contact the Foundation or list Tompkins Cortland Community College as in the "education" section of their LinkedIn profile. The Foundation uses LinkedIn to connect with alumni and to foster connections amongst alumni.
Standing in a chef's coat in the TC3 Eatery and looking every bit the part, Sam Trotman responded to a simple question about his post-graduation hopes: "I want to go everywhere."
He's picked the right program. Hotel and Restaurant Management students get the opportunity to travel while they're in school, taking internships in Peru, Florida, and elsewhere.
And, they get to travel when they're out of school. Recent grads who have transferred to four-year schools now find themselves working in South America, Ukraine, and more.
