Welcome Letter

On behalf of the Liberal and Performing Arts Division, I want to welcome you to Texarkana College.  The Liberal and Performing Arts Division offers a variety of courses and programs in art, English, journalism, music, Spanish, and speech.  Students not only have the opportunity to learn but also to showcase their skills through theatrical and musical performances, art exhibitions, and student publications.

Students are encouraged to be part of the TC family by taking advantage of exciting opportunities in award-winning clubs and organizations such as Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society, Texarkana College Honors College, and our TC Choir.

We want your experience at Texarkana College to prepare you for the future and lead you to accomplish your educational and professional goals.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact me. My office is on the first floor of the Stilwell Humanities building. I look forward to meeting you!
