TCC’s fall Student-Faculty Day was eventful. Stu-Fac Day was an event to allow both the students and faculty on campus see all of the different and diverse clubs, organizations and resources that Tallahassee Community College offers to its students. Students were able to enjoy music, food and learn about the different organizations the school provides.
Organizations around campus were able to put out tables and pass out flyers to students. Stu-Fac Day allowed students new insight on what TCC really has to offer.
Many Campus resources had tables at Stu-Fac Day as well. Some included the Career Center and the Learning Commons
Career Center Director Catie Goodman is helping set up the table. The Career Center table passed out Chick-Fil-A plush cows and flyers with information about the center. “It’s a great way to let our students know about the awesome career center services and events,” Goodman said.
Learning Commons Assistant Director Melvin Middleton waits ready for students to arrive. The Learning Commons allowed students to spin a wheel and win prizes. “As a new an employee this is my first year participating it is very exciting to see the faculty and students interacting outside the classroom,” Middleton said.
Other organizations around campus also participated in Stu-Fac Day. The Theater Club was painting students faces and NAMI was promoting their fight to reduce the stigma of mental illness.
Theater Club members prepare to paint students faces at Stu-Fact Day. They also discussed their latest production “The Laramie Project. Is a way for student and faculty interact and a good way for students to see what clubs we offer here in TCC campus.” Theater member Alexa Roddenberry said.
President of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI, Mikayla Register prepares to speak about her organization. NAMI was amongst many tables to see a large flow of students throughout the event. “We have students, faculty and a professor, our advisor Rachel Mock is a counselor on campus. As students, our mission statement is to reduce stigma on mental health on campus and in our community.” Register said.
New Clubs also joined in the festivities to promote their name and recruit new members. One of the new clubs was the College Democrats club. The club is very new, only in their first semester and had many students interested in joining them.

The club was flocked with students interested in their organization. “College Democrats is the first partisan organization and our mission is to help TCC students become better engaged in Florida politics and help affect change at the local, state and federal level.” College Democrat President Nathan David said.
There were many fun activities for students to participate in at Stu-Fac Day. There was pizza that was given out for going to all of the tables. Students got to enjoy music put on by TCC as well as candy and snacks at different tables, either given away to draw students in or as prizes for participating at their table.
The slice office set up a photo booth for students to take pictures. There were different props for students to use and have fun with. Pictured here are Dajour Boasmna, Jovany Arrindell and Caryl Jones.
