Local community college, Pellissippi State, has an excellent reputation. Professors, advisors, and administrators are known for their hands-on mentorship of each student enrolled. Smart Trips staff say this dynamic is evident on campus.
“The first time I was invited to speak at their orientation, it was clear they’re more like a family than a school,” says Outreach Coordinator Sara Martin. “I’ve since visited three of their campuses and it’s the same across the board – Pellissippi State takes care of their students.”
