How can Bucks County Community College help you reach your educational goals?
Find out the answer to this question and more at the BCCC Spring Open House on March 27. Bucks County Community College invites prospective students and their parents to the Newtown Campus on Wednesday, March 27 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Director of Admissions Marlene Barlow says that the open house is an excellent time for the community to learn about the many aspects of Bucks.
“Along with our highly regarded undergraduate programs, we have workforce training and continuing education programs for those who would benefit from short-term studies. According to a recent article in Inside Higher Ed, nearly half of all college students start their college education at a community college, and we’re proud to have educated thousands from our county, launching students onto premier transfer universities and satisfying careers in all areas of the workplace.” – Marlene Barlow, Director of Admissions
The free event is based in the Linksz Pavilion – the spacious hall connecting the Rollins Center student union building with the Gymnasium. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Along with the academic department faculty and deans, there will also be representatives from Accessibility and Transfer Services, Student Life & Athletics, Financial Aid, the Scholarship Foundation and more. Student ambassadors will lead campus tours, including visits to the Arts Department studios and science labs.
After attending Bucks, most students transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelor’s degree, while others directly enter the workforce to launch a career. Courses can be taken at the original campus in Newtown, the Upper Bucks Campus in Perkasie, the Gene and Marlene Epstein Campus at Lower Bucks in Bristol, and online through the college’s award-winning virtual campus.
