Student Life

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. We 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.

The Office of Student Life is invested in helping students overcome the barriers that make attending school difficult. One major thing is hunger and food insecurity. In conjunction with Greater Boston Food Bank, the Office sponsors the Mobile Food Market. It is held once a month and fresh and frozen perishable food is given to students, faculty, staff and community members in need. The Office also established the Grab and Go Food Pantry to assist students who do not have enough to eat on a daily basis. The Pantry offers single serving non-perishable items to be eaten that day, not take home. The pantry operates out of the Office of Student Life Mondays-Fridays, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM. 

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 Life Office works to provide opportunities to meet others and have fun. During the year, the Student Life Office sponsors many events such as lectures, comedy shows, bands, karaoke, film series, and multicultural activities.
