BC’s Weeks of Welcome to provide fun, informative start to new semester

Mon Aug 30, 2021

Brazosport College’s Office of Student Life is ensuring that students will have plenty of opportunities for student involvement as they return for classes this semester.

Through its 2021 Fall semester Weeks of Welcome activities, which runs from Aug. 30 through Sept. 9, BC’s Office of Student Life will greet students back to campus with fun activities and games, but also with plenty of information about the College’s organizations and other opportunities.

The two-week event kicks off on Monday, Aug. 30 with welcome bags for students in the College’s BC Central and Sadler lobbies, and will close on Thursday, Sept 9 with the kickoff of the 2021-22 Strive2Drive promotion, which will eventually result in a student winning a new Honda Civic at the conclusion of the Spring 2022 semester.  

This semester’s Weeks of Welcome will also include ACE it pancake and pizza events, a student involvement fair, a school supply giveaway, trivia and bingo contests, a drive-in movie viewing and a variety of department open houses, among other activities.
