Student leaders, staff preparing for new semester
A week of preparing, development, and fellowship are ahead of the start of fall classes for many students and staff at BBC.
Those involved in leadership roles on campus take part in a special week-long training event designed to encourage personal growth, grow healthy relationships, and create an enhanced on campus experience for students.
The special week, August 15 - 19, features training and classes for Residence Hall staff members and students leaders, including Resident Assistants, dorm leaders, and Student Leadership Council members.
Leading on campus
Under the advisement of Jonathan Strayer, Director of Student Activities, Student Leadership Council plays an important and influential role in many student organizations. Members of the council are elected by their peers to represent the student body.
Through its leadership, SLC provides opportunities for spiritual, social and academic growth.

Cynthia Nichols (junior) of Cleveland, OH - Executive Rep.
John Dobson (senior) of Bellevue, OH - Treasurer
Tim Walker (senior) of Romulus, MI - President
Julie Herr (junior) of Lancaster, PA - Secretary
