Weekend storm damages campus building

May 11, 2010

A 60-foot native oak tree came down across the roof on the north side of the Children’s Creative Learning Center in Armstrong Lodge during the high winds and storms this weekend. The tree caused substantial structural damage to the building.

Fortunately, this occured around 4:00 p.m. Saturday when the campus was closed. Nobody was in the building at the time of the damage, so there were no injuries.

The fallen tree was removed Sunday. Our staff is working to prevent further wind and water damage to the building. Read the rest of this entry »

More info on the Open House.

This Thursday, Main Campus will hold its Annual Fall Open House.  This will be the first Open House in which we can show off the Student Success Center.  I am sure the reviews will be just like the others since the building opened this summer.  People simply love the new addition to our Main Campus!

Record attendance for this event has occurred over the last two years.  I expect much the same for this year’s version.  Students and parents are eager to ask our excellent faculty and staff a variety of questions.  We are more than happy to answer such inquiries and provide whatever assistance is needed.

Student Success Center Opening

How do you like the Student Success Center?  The grand opening on 9-9-09 was a huge success – so was the Steeler Party in the SSC lounge the next day.

Please provide me with some suggestions for student activities you would like to see on campus, especially those that incorporate the new lounge and deck area of the SSC.  Read the rest of this entry »

A quick look at the calendar indicates it’s August 4.  August 4?!?!  Where did the summer go?

The summer has been quite busy at the Main Campus as well as our three other sites.  Summer is up 6.6 percent in enrollment and 10.7 percent in credits.  While we are busy preparing for the fall semester, the summer has been just as busy with the move of offices into our new Student Success Center on Main Campus.

BC3 Help Line

October 20, 2008

This post is by guest blogger, John Kearney, Vice President of Student Services at BC3.

It’s hard to believe its already past midterm for the fall 2008 semester.  I hope that your classes are going well and that you are enjoying the early fall weather on our beautiful campus. 

It’s perfect weather for taking a walk at BC3.  On my walks, I can’t help but notice all of the activity at the construction site for the new Student Success Center.  The project is on schedule with most of the walls up and most of the building under a roof now. Read the rest of this entry »
