2014 Orientation

Welcome to Bristol Community College! (Fall River Campus MAP)

Why should I attend Orientation?

College Orientation is often the first step in a new academic career. Here at BCC we encourage all first semester students, day or evening, part-time or full-time, traditional or non-traditional, to attend Orientation. The information you receive  will serve you throughout your time at BCC. Learn about your program, meet fellow students, take a campus tour -- these are just a few things that you can do at Orientation.

We look forward to meeting you in August!
