Blackboard reads: Welcome to TAC, with schedule for the first day

The 2019 California Summer Great Books Program for High School Students is under way!

Students began arriving at Los Angeles International Airport Sunday morning — some traveling from as far as the U.K. and Argentina — where they were met by the Summer Program prefects, who took them on one of several buses back to campus. Over the course of the afternoon, more buses arrived, as did cars carrying students who live closer to the College. Upon settling in their residence halls, the students began visiting, playing sports, and touring the grounds.
