About us

Who We Are

Welcome to The Current!

We are Tidewater Community College's official, student-run newspaper.

Founded in the spring of 2017 on TCC's Virginia Beach campus by Rosemarie O'Connor, The Current endeavors to bring you college and local news that you can use.

Students may submit original articles, photographs, and other multimedia concerning events on campus as well as events in the greater Hampton Roads area. We also report movie reviews, opinion pieces, national news, and everything in between!

We maintain journalistic independence from the college. Views expressed in this student publication’s website are those of the author, not of the college, The Current, or of the editorial board.

Contact Tanis Mack at or faculty advisors Dr. Thomas M. Geary at or Frances Norge at for more information.
