“When I learned about the opportunity to travel to Barbados to do children’s theatre with the performance group I was in, I knew it was time to cash in my Derek Jeter baseball cards to help raise money for the trip. I will never regret that decision.”

Samuel Guetterman, major: transfer (music/theatre)


“To take the Tennessee Transfer Pathway was one of the best decisions I have made in college. The instructors from Roane State gave me all the knowledge needed to continue to succeed in my pursuit of a four-year degree.”

Marcus Wise, major: transfer (mechanical engineering)

“I feel that Marcus was well-prepared for the Engineering program at Tennessee Tech. As a student in my Fluid Mechanics course, he clearly shows that he posseses all the necessary tools to be successful in my class, as well as all his other upper-level mechanical engineering classes.”

Ahmed Abounassif, PhD, Tennessee Tech Professor
