A group of local eighth-grade students received a quick glimpse into college life recently thanks to the Brazosport College Peer Recruiters. The BC Peers took more than 200 Clute Intermediate students from on tours of the school’s campus.

During the tours, the eighth-graders were also introduced to a variety of different programs. Among the areas toured were the BC Library, Student Life, the Swamp and the Clarion, among other areas.

Students also learned about the College’s process technology, drafting, robotics, nursing, pipefitting and HVAC programs.

The BC Peer Recruiters are college students and ambassadors of Brazosport College. They do outreach activities through local schools, community events and special programs.

More Brazosport Independent School District eight-graders are scheduled to tour the BC campus in coming months, with Freeport Intermediate visiting the campus in March and Lake Jackson Intermediate in May.
