Tidewater Community College, a two-year institution in southeastern Virginia, was founded by a local philanthropist in 1968, serving about 600 students. In the ensuing decades, TCC expanded into what is now the second-largest community college in the Virginia Community College System, and the 37th largest in the nation. With the major expansion of student living, the college has spread into five campuses, including locations in South Hampton Roads, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach, a campus that opened in 2001. Currently, about 46,000 young scholars enroll at Tidewater Community College, and reside in student housing and college apartments throughout the region. The area offers students a lifestyle that benefits from its coastal location, near the Chesapeake Bay and Virginia Beach.
TCC offers a wide variety of vocational and transfer degrees and certificates, including programs in fields as diverse and specialized as nursing and the culinary arts. The school’s mission statement professes a commitment to “lifelong learning to heighten the awareness of students to multiple paths for achievement, while helping them pursue the choices most conducive to their individual needs.” Students are encouraged to select a campus and student living situation based on the location’s academic strengths and the suitability of the school’s location.
