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.

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.

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.

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!
