Life as an Apache

TJC provides a full college experience – we offer opportunities and programs that add to your involvement outside the classroom.

Campus Life

TJC is the premier college of East Texas with rich social and cultural opportunities. Our 90-year history includes longstanding traditions and exciting campus activities. If you are looking for leadership development opportunities, getting involved in one of over 50 clubs and organizations or simply have some free time between classes and want to find something to do – TJC offers lots of ways to get involved in the campus community.


We pulled out all the stops for Homecoming 2016, with a week of activities celebrating TJC’s 90th anniversary and culminating in a fireworks extravaganza following the homecoming football game.
