Commencement: Our Super Bowl

May 10, 2012

As a sports fanatic, I often overdue it on sports analogies.

Please stick with me on this one: March and April is BC3’s playoff run… and Commencement is our Super Bowl!

Since late March, the College has honored our stellar students and employees with various events. On March 16, our chapter of Phi Theta Kappa welcomed new inductees. On March 20, we held our Student Awards Day. Several students lobbied on behalf of the College in Harrisburg on April 3. Two days later, on April 5, the first Academic Success Forum was held.

On the personnel side, the College hosted our Annual Recognition Dinner on April 26. This year’s edition featured video interviews of honorees. It was a huge success! Read the rest of this entry »


PR Class Survey

March 6, 2012

Happy Spring Break to the faculty and students of BC3! It is hard to believe the semester is going by so quickly.

As you may know, I am honored to teach at the College. I do so every Wednesday when I meet from 3:35 to 6:40 p.m. with 12 very special students in my Introduction to Public Relations class.

You may be interested to know the results of an informal survey I took in class last week. Read the rest of this entry »


First Day of Class – Spring 2012

January 17, 2012

The start of another semester. Are you ready? Do you have butterflies?

I can remember being excited, but a bit anxious at the start of each semester. What would my professors be like? How about my workload? Will I meet any new friends?

An advantage you have as a student at BC3 is our low student-to-faculty ratio. Instead of taking classes with hundreds of students, on average you will take courses with 17 others. Better yet, you will be taught by full and part time faculty members who are experts in their respective fields – not graduate teaching assistants. Read the rest of this entry »


Privileged to teach

May 6, 2011

Another end to a great semester.

I am blessed to still teach here at the College. On Wednesday’s from 3:35 to 6:40 p.m., I am privileged to teach 14 BC3 students in an Introduction to Public Relations course (COMM 230). On Wednesday, May 4, the spring of 2011 semester culminated with a final examination.

Our in-class discussions over the last few months have been lively. We discussed current events, new technology and its impact on PR as well as various PR and communication definitions, processes and models. We also spent a great deal of time on interviewing skills and crisis management. Read the rest of this entry »

February 2, 2011

The spring 2011 semester is off and running!

While this is certainly an exciting time at any of our BC3 campus locations, it is even more so at our BC3 @ LindenPointe in Hermitage, Mercer County.

BC3 @ LindenPointe has expanded its footprint from an original 4,000 square foot facility to a beautiful, state-of-the art 20,000 square foot gem. Thanks to our own BC3 Education Foundation, Inc., BC3 @ LindenPointe has 8 new classrooms, 2 computer labs, 1 science lab, and outdoor patio, student lounges, and additional parking.
