Clayton Williams American Sign Language

Clayton Williams had to make some adjustments when he came to TCC. As a home-schooled student making the transition to college classes, he had to adjust to not only a new peer group, but also a new schedule.

“It was definitely different being around so many people, but I really like TCC,” he said. “Now I have a class schedule and professors I have to see.”

Clayton, who attends classes at Northeast and West campuses, is majoring in American Sign Language, and volunteers at Happy Hands Education Center, a school for children with hearing loss or communication disorders in Broken Arrow.

“The campuses are really convenient for where I live, and attending for my degree is free through Tulsa Achieves,” Clayton said. “My advice to incoming students is to not care about what other people think and pay attention to deadlines.”
