Student Engagement

At Bristol Community College, education extends beyond the classroom. You can develop new skills by participating in extracurricular activities. No matter what your interests, you can find a group of like-minded students who get together at BCC. Many of the degree programs sponsor clubs where you can gather with your fellow future professionals to learn more about the field. If you are a writer or photographer, you can utilize your talents on the student newspaper, The BCC Observer. If acting or production interests you, join the College drama association, BCC Club Theatre. We also have clubs that focus on the celebration of the many cultures represented on Campus.

If you have an eye for politics, you can represent the interests of fellow students on BCC’s Student Senate. The Senate offers a great opportunity for the development of leadership, interpersonal, and public relations skills. You may also represent students by participating on a College-wide committee. Along with faculty, staff, and administrators, you can make recommendations on such issues as academic standards, the College budget, bookstore, cafeteria concerns, and orientation day.

If you like helping others or if you would like the opportunity to talk about your experiences at BCC, consider joining the Ambassador Program. This program utilizes the best voice of the campus -- its students -- in "getting the word out" about the campus and its numerous opportunities. Student Ambassadors will have the opportunity to participate in various campus activities, campus tours, prospective student recruitment efforts, new student orientations, speaking engagements, and other leadership events.

In addition to the opportunity to develop valuable skills that employers will find attractive, the Student Engagement office works to provide opportunities to meet others and have fun. During the year, the Student Engagement office sponsors many events such as lectures, picnics, comedy shows, bands, karaoke, film series, and multicultural activities.

Contact the Student Engagement Office at the Fall River Campus Commonwealth College Center, G102, ext. 2222; the New Bedford Campus at ext. 4000; or Attleboro Center at ext. 3527.
