Student Organizations


Get Involved in Campus Activities

Get involved in organizations or activities - a great way to meet others with similar interests.

Students have the opportunity to participate in student organizations, intramurals, community outreach and much more. Research shows that students who are involved in campus activities are much more likely to achieve their academic and personal goals than those who are not. Get involved in campus activities at BC!
