Quote from the President

“Since its founding in 1979, Brunswick Community College (BCC) has fostered relationships with community and local businesses, providing curriculum and continuing education programs that speak to economic needs. It has also delivered associate degrees that form a seamless transition to four-year colleges and universities. An array of student support services—including library assistance, career counseling, and individual tutoring and mentoring—are in place to 'pave the way' to student success. Finally, students can expand their involvement at BCC by exploring the many options offered through the Student Government Association and campus clubs, athletics, the Dinah E. Gore Fitness & Aquatics Center, and the Odell Williamson Auditorium. There is something for everyone at BCC!”
