Trisha Wilging
Associate Professor, Reading

Contact LAC, L-170

I began my education at Riverside Community College, and it was there that I developed a deeper love for literature, for teaching, and for the community college environment. Following my time at RCC, I transferred to the University of California, Riverside, where I continued to enjoy reading and any courses that allowed me to delve into texts. There I received my BA in English. I continued post-graduate work at California State University, Fullerton, where I earned my Master of Science degree in Reading Education with a view to teach at the community college level, where I had begun my own education. 

I love reading, I love teaching, and I love college students. I feel very fortunate to have the privilege of getting to do something I enjoy so much every day. These books have made an impact on my life: 

  • The Bible
  • Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
  • The Things They Carried, Tim O’Brien
  • Night, Elie Wiesel
