Welcome Week to feature virtual activities for BC students

Wed Aug 19, 2020

Every year, Brazosport College’s Office of Student Life ensures that students are welcomed back to the College with plenty of fun and games. These events — known as Welcome Week — also provide students an opportunity to get to know the College. During Welcome Week, students learn about the many clubs and organizations the College offers, as well as discover tips on finding success at BC.

Brazosport College might look a little different this fall, but Welcome Week — which will be presented virtually — will be just as fun and informational as ever.

Among the upcoming activities in this semester’s Virtual Welcome Week are online games, workout classes, Gator trivia, a student involvement fair and even a fun opportunity to see oneself as a digital caricature. The 2019-20 Strive2Drive winner will also be announced during this semester’s Welcome Week festivities.
