Melinda Harbin was 14-years-old when she first visited the UTC campus and told herself she was going to be a college graduate one day. Nearly 30 years later, her dream came true. Before achieving a degree in psychology, she endured a harrowing journey.
UTC’s new freshmen transition program, Moc Up, kicked off with cookouts, scavenger hunts and living in the dorms for about 140 incoming freshmen. Success at UTC was the ultimate goal of the program as students learned about managing their finances, locating campus resources and creating good study habits.
