Saige Maxville is working toward a career in physical therapy, and she says she’s certain TCC is the right place to pursue her goal of working in health care.
As a member of the Native American Student Association, she’s engaging with her heritage and building connections to tribal organizations that will help her achieve her career ambitions. Additionally, NASA gives her an on-campus family connection: Her father Tim – also a TCC student – is president of the organization.
“I like that we get to do a lot of cultural things and events for the community, but I can’t get away with missing any meetings!” Saige joked.
The Charles Page high school graduate chose TCC because the Tulsa Achieves program keeps her college costs low and the location is convenient.
“TCC gives me an affordable education, and I live right down the road,” she said. “It’s so easy for me to go to TCC and get basic education credits out of the way.”
Saige was surprised by the different perspectives and opportunities available to TCC students.
“I like how diverse TCC is,” she said. “I didn’t think there were going to be so many student groups and experiences.”
