Counting my blessings

December 11, 2013

Where oh where has the fall semester of 2013 gone?

As final exams are concluding, the holiday season draws upon us. I, for one, will count my blessings. Here’s several that I appreciate:

Family – Without their support, I just couldn’t do my job.

Colleagues – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – blue-collar, hard working and dedicated summarize our terrific faculty and staff.

Students – You are the motivation in all we do. We strive for affordable, accessible and quality education with you in mind. Read the rest of this entry »

What a GREAT start to the Fall 2013 semester!

Many people have told me there seems to be a certain “buzz” in the air on all of our campus locations.

Enrollment is up – BC3 is one of the few public institutions to have an increase. All of our campus locations look beautiful, including our newest, BC3 @ Brockway in Jefferson County.

Last week, our Main Campus community, led by many of Professor Chris Calhoun’s students, pitched in for a clean-up day. The primary focus was sprucing up the Imhoff Trail, a wooded, 1.5 mile pathway that starts behind the old observatory. The end result: an even more beautiful Main Campus!

Introducing BC3 @ Brockway

March 26, 2013

BCC Rear Plaza View 2I have often said that “we are proud to be Butler County’s community college.” However, we also understand our role as one of the Commonwealth’s 14 community colleges.

As Pennsylvania’s northwestern most community college, our board and institution as a whole has adopted a regional philosophy. Our success in Cranberry Township, Lawrence and Mercer counties and of course Main Campus, speaks volumes of this approach.

Yesterday, the College expanded our off-campus locations by one. BC3 @ Brockway, which will service Clarion, Clearfield, Jefferson and Elk counties, joins BC3 @ Cranberry, BC3 @ Lawrence Crossing, BC3 @ LindenPointe and BC3 Main Campus. An announcement was made yesterday before approximately 100 people at Brockway High School. Read the rest of this entry »

BC3 purchases 6.15 acre property

January 31, 2012

Two weeks ago, the College Board of Trustees approved a purchase of a 6.15 acre property that is adjacent to the College. The property has long been identified in our Master Planning Process as a key acquisition for the College.

Careful planning and smart business practices make such a purchase a reality.

There are lots of possibilities for the property, including: storage in a three-stall garage and barn, expansion of our current Children’s Creative Learning Center, and new ingress and egress into campus, office space, and community usage.

The closing for the property is still a month away. Click here to read more about this acquisition and stay tuned for more news on the transformation!


BC3 @ LindenPointe: Phoenix Award

June 7, 2011

I have often said, “BC3 is proud to be Butler County’s community college.” I certainly do no waiver from such a statement; however, with our new regional vision, we certainly understand the College’s role as an institution of higher education in all of northwestern Pennsylvania.

Last week, the College was recognized for our successful efforts in Mercer County. Read the rest of this entry »
