Add to it diverse cultural events including FSU's Seven Days of Opening Nights, which attracts a kaleidoscope of world-renowned artists and performers, the African Caribbean Dance Theatre's Annual Florida African Dance Festival, the North Florida Hispanic Association's Hispanic Festival and the Gadsden County Latino Fest. Tallahassee is an ideal place to live and learn. TCC's faculty is committed to learning, student success and quality improvement. Many of our faculty members have received recognition from state and national organizations as being the finest in their field. TCC's traditionally strong faculty - rated twice the national average in doctoral degrees and years of experience - provides a strong foundation for its many graduates moving on to four-year colleges and universities. TCC offers several college readiness programs such as TCC Connection and the Summer Education Academy. TCC Connection and the Summer Education Academy are summer programs designed to help high school students who score below college level on the Florida College Entrance Placement Test (CPT). The programs also hope to set the stage for students' subsequent improved performance in high school.
