Black Male Achievers
The BMA program provides mentoring, academic advising, and academic and professional skill development via workshops and guest speakers all with the objective of helping our student members accomplish their goals of earning an associate’s degree, transferring to a university, and/or entering the workforce. Each member is expected to attend weekly workshops or guest speaker activities and actively participate in community service opportunities. Those students who meet those and other requirements are eligible to apply for a Strides scholarship that requires participants to conduct research on a topic and present that research in some capacity (e.g., student symposium, social media platform, etc.).
Brain Bowl players buzz in to questions about Math, Science, Literature, History, Geography, Humanities, and Social Sciences and compete against other community college teams. Participants have fun while strengthening their general knowledge and oral communication skills.

Hispanic Alliance for Talented Students (H.A.T.S.)
This organization promotes intercultural understanding and empowerment for Hispanic students. A new cohort of Hispanic students is selected each academic year term and encourages students from the Leon, Gadsden, Wakulla, or surrounding counties (within the state of Florida) to join. These students will matriculate at TCC together as they are placed in similar courses and activities that engage them in career building and goal-setting enrichment sessions.
Model United Nations
It is the purpose of this student lead organization to facilitate a better understanding of international decision-making. Through participation in regional and international conferences, where they debate issues from the perspective of their chosen country, such as human rights, military conflicts, and international economics, students benefit from a greater awareness of international issues. This heightened awareness, along with a better understanding of the perspective of other nations in the world, also facilitates greater academic capabilities because of the necessary preparation.
