Thank you for visiting our college website and searching for information about who we are and what it is like to be a student here. I am the “parent-connector” here on campus, perhaps since I have four children who attended and graduated from here and I feel your pain, or perhaps because I like to write newsletters. Either way, I am having great fun connecting to parents of students and prospective students. We know that there are many options available to you and we appreciate the opportunity to introduce you to TMC. Oops, that sounds just like getting on an airplane – “we know there are many choices for air travel and we appreciate that you chose United” – sorry about that!
My job is made possible because of a genetic defect in males…for young men between the ages of 16-25, it is impossible for them to tell their parents anything that is going on. Young ladies are better at this but I step in for the guys and tell parents what they want to know while their children are here. I have formed a “Parent Network” that allows me to email all our parents every other week just to let them know what is going on, who is dating whom, whose laundry is not done…you know, valuable bits of information like that! The letters I send out are rather unusual and I admit right up front that I try to make you laugh, but my purpose is to connect to parents so that they have a source of quick information, updates, and a place to ask questions. However, when parents ask me to do their child’s laundry, that’s a bit over the edge…
If you ask me questions as a parent who sent four children here…here are my answers:
If you are a parent of a current student or even a prospective student and you want to join our Parent Network, all you need to do is just email me at email@example.com and tell me to add you to the network. Perhaps hearing from week to week what is going on here will make you feel more at home and will allow you to rest easier if you decide that TMC is the place for your child.
If you have any questions about TMC, just drop me an email and I will be glad to respond. They only let me out for sunshine and food a couple of times a day, so I have plenty of time to answer emails. We have great students here and our campus is a wonderful place to be. If I can be of any help to you, I hope you will contact me.
May the Lord bless you!
