BC to welcome students back to campus

Thu Jan 7, 2016

Brazosport College’s Office of Student Life is making sure students returning to classes next week are not only welcomed back to campus with enjoyable and fun activities, but also with plenty of information about the College’s organizations and activities.

Through its 2016 Spring Welcome Week event, the BC Office of Student Life will be holding activities all week to help students become involved on campus.

The week kicks off Monday with coffee and welcome bags for students in the College’s Central and Sadler lobbies, and will close with a screening of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” on Thursday. These events are only the start of a busy week, though.

Welcome Week will also include a pancake breakfast, a student involvement fair, free health screenings, and a Lego, gingerbread house and paper house building activity hosted by Habitat for Humanity at BC, among other events.

Listed below is a schedule for Welcome Week:
