An incredible journey begins

Finally, it’s here.

The fall 2020 semester and the start of a new academic year at all Butler County Community College locations.

Our main campus looks great. Sunbeams are pooling under our oak trees. The iconic BC3 Conestoga wagon is sitting outside my office window in the Administration Building. Colleagues are staffing tents along Pioneer Path for Welcome Week. Blue and white balloons are dancing in the morning breeze. Students are wearing masks as they head to classes. While student traffic to start a semester is less than “normal” here on main campus, our enrollment growth is elsewhere: BC3 @ Brockway enrollment is up 25.18 percent when compared with the beginning of the fall 2019 semester; online classes are up 22.04 percent; BC3 @ Armstrong, up 12.12 percent; BC3 @ LindenPointe, up 7.89 percent; BC3 @ Lawrence Crossing, up 1.83 percent and BC3 @ Cranberry is even.

Whether students are attending BC3 online; through blended, hybrid or remote formats; or in person at a BC3 location, one thing is certain: Our students will continue to receive the same quality, affordable and accessible education from our expert faculty members.

Remember, there is still time to register for fall classes. Our 15-week Session 1 classes are held from today through Dec. 12. Our 10-week Session 2 courses are held from Sept. 21 to Dec. 12. And, of course, five-week online Fast Track classes are held throughout the fall semester. Find out more at bc3.edu/credit-schedule.

Have a great fall semester and an incredible journey at BC3!
