The All-Stars program on TR Campus is working on a proposal to improve the TCC website, which they will pitch at the end of the semester to faculty and staff.

All-Stars is a leadership program where students spend a semester working on a project of their choice that helps improve student life in some way.

“Sometimes they can agree with us or they just take a portion of what we say and implement that,” TR student Casey Segovia said.

The TCC website caught their eye when they researched what project to do. They wanted to make it more efficient by providing more information that is helpful for students to access local resources.

“The TCC website is so not user friendly at all,” TR student Rose Havener said. “And we had a bunch of our, the people who took our survey that said ‘The search bar in the TCC homepage is useless.’”

Information is hard to find as well because of how it is organized, Segovia said.

“And some of the information is just down right wrong.” Havener said.

They also researched what other schools use and found that Dallas Community College uses a website called Aunt Bertha. It has plenty of resources for students such as how to find food, housing and transportation.

“Right now, what we’re working on is getting a presentation complete in order to present to the staff and the faculty of TCC by the end of the semester,” Segovia said.

The All-Stars program requires students to apply and participate for only one semester, so every semester new students work on a new project.

All-Stars is just one of TR’s leadership programs, they also have Executive Class and P3.

“All-Stars is like our starting program where they’re learning those basic leadership skills,” said Kelsey Bratcher, TR student activities coordinator. “They are learning to work in teams. They’re learning to do some research, learning more about Trinity River Campus and Tarrant County College.”

They often have guest speakers such as president of the Asian American Contractors Association of Texas, Ken Tse, who was part of the architectural team that designed TR Campus.

At the beginning of the semester, the students were asked “What is a TCC student?” They concluded that TCC students are dream makers, Havener said.

“I think that’s what we’re trying to do with the website,” she said. “We’re improving that. We’re helping that. We’re reinforcing that idea of being dream makers.”
