Middle Tennessee Reconnect Community Reconnect Café

Middle Tennessee Reconnect Community Reconnect Café

At Nashville State Community College

If you are a student at the Main, East Davidson or Southeast Campus of Nashville State, or attending TCAT Nashville, or a resident of Davidson county and would like to receive free, neutral, supportive navigation services from your Middle Tennessee Reconnect Community, then you are in luck!

The Middle Tennessee Reconnect Café is now open on the White Bridge Road Campus in Room S214 in the Student Services Building (S), right next door to the Admissions Office. Fred Frazier, the Completion Coach for MTRC is there to assist you with program and career choice, connection to resources and to answer questions about going to school. Whether you are returning after a break, a current student, or someone who has never attended college before, Fred is there to assist you!

Nancy Nettles and Minzi Thomas are Reconnect Navigators. Nancy serves for both the East Davidson and Southeast Campuses of Nashville State Community College, and Minzi is based at the White Bridge Road Campus.

Fred, Minzi and Nancy can guide you through the process of applying for college, whether you want to attend Nashville State Community College, TCAT Nashville, or another area school.

Attending school for the first time is not easy. Roadblocks pop up and sometimes you need a little extra support to find the right person to talk to or the talk through a solution to a problem. We hope you will visit the Reconnect Cafe, meet the staff, and use the free resources available to you to help you get “to-and-through” your degree program.

If you would like to speak with a Reconnect Navigator, Click GET STARTED and complete a short information form and you will be assigned to someone shortly.


The Reconnect Cafes on the campuses of Nashville State Community College are made possible by a Talent Hub grant from Lumina Foundation, in partnership with Nashville State Community College and the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and Middle Tennessee Reconnect Community.

I was able to communicate with Fred and I am so glad I did. He was great to talk to! Definitely made me excited to re-enroll and phenomenal words of wisdom from him. Thank you all for the help.
