Interesting things that are going on at Thaddeus Stevens College.

Please say goodbye to Bethany Herr. Her final day in the Math Tutoring Lab will be on Friday February 27th. She will be moving on to a new full time job. We wish her the same success that she had with Thaddeus Stevens students.
On Monday at the Faculty & Staff meetings, Dr. Griscom presented the drone footage of the Main Campus. Below, please find a link to that video, as well as the other two videos featuring the branch and the Greiner campus.

Below is a link regarding a scholarship that was just forwarded to us. Please review to determine if you are eligible to apply and take note to the upcoming deadline.

Chris Gojda

Thaddeus Stevens is proud to have former Harrisburg resident Chris Gojda on its math tutoring staff. Chris is a 30 years old student finishing up his degree at Millersville University, where he double majors in physics and math, which are 2 subject areas that he enjoys working with students. Since being at Millersville, he has made the dean's list every semester since returning to school (7 semesters).

In additing to this, Chris is proud of having won the Pennsylvania State Math Association of Two Year Colleges Kalman Mec's Student award in 2013 while attending HACC. For awards and opportunities in education, Chris is proud to continue to be a part of the educational experience of other community college students.

In the future, Chris wants to go to grad school for his Ph.D in astrophysics, astronomy, or relativity.

However, Chris isn't all math. In the days before he made the "right choice" to come back to school, he worked at the post office for about 8 years. Wanting a job with a future for himself and for the opportunities that it will allow him made him choose the math route.

Stop by the tutoring center from Monday to Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoon, and Chris will happily assist you.
