Visitors get closer look at BBC

BBC kicked off a series of unique on-campus visit days with iView, a special event offering interested students and their parents an in-depth look at BBC.

Held September 2-4, iView gave future students a full view of what BBC has to offer.

Students spent two nights in a residence hall, attended classes, and ate meals in the cafeteria. Many had a chance to meet with professors, Admissions Counselors, and financial aid representatives while on campus.

A highlight of the weekend was a special iView social on Friday evening.

Visitors travelled to Clarks Summit from several states including Maryland, New York, and Massachusetts to experience BBC for themselves.

"I came to see the college and meet with some teachers," said Jordan Evans of West Winfield, NY. "It was a good time. The admissions meeting was great, and we got to see what classes were like."
