Is there a more beautiful time than autumn on our Main Campus? The leaves, chill in the air and even the smell indicates that fall is here. I just love seeing our students wearing their BC3 gear as they joyfully make their way across campus.

Third, the 30th anniversary of BC3′s Metrology program was celebrated. And, fourth, the Distinguished Alumni winners speeches were spectacular! Read the rest of this entry »
