Bristol Community College welcomed new students at the Bristol Experience (BristolEXP) event on Wednesday, September 1

Bristol Experience 2021On Wednesday, September 1, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Bristol Community College welcomed the college’s new students at the Bristol Experience (BristolEXP) event on the Bristol Fall River Campus. At the event, students were able to meet with many of our student support services, connect with academic departments and explore the campus before the Fall 2021 semester begins on Tuesday, September 7.

To support social distancing, activities were hosted throughout the Bristol Fall River Campus, featuring tours of the college’s Library & Learning Commons; one-on-one appointments with members of the academic advising team, financial aid staff, and faculty; as well as fun activities including family-friendly crafts and a barbeque lunch.

Bristol Experience 2021The event included two Resource Fairs, where students could learn about the college’s available degree and certificate programs, support services, clubs, activities and student centers, including Bristol's Multicultural Student Center, Basic Needs Center, the new Student Success Center and more.

For students unable to attend the day’s in-person activities, the Bristol Experience event was complemented with the option for students to meet with Bristol’s academic leaders virtually by Zoom and closed with a special virtual Question & Answer event with Bristol Community College President Laura L. Douglas, where students shared and discussed their questions about the upcoming fall semester.
