Focused days tailor visits to student majors
A set of special campus visit days this academic year focuses on specific undergraduate programs at BBC, giving future students a more in-depth look at their major field of interest.
Campus visits are the best way to gain a full view of the range of what BBC offers. They also give future students opportunities to be a part of the campus community and connect early with key faculty, staff, and other students.
To assist future students and their families further, BBC is providing a $250 travel reimbursement. The cost of gas, tolls, and fares will be credited back to students after they enroll.

Scheduling a visit can be easily done online here.
