Featured Student Profile: Chris

For Chris, and so many others like him, a bachelor’s degree began at Bristol.

After graduating from Bishop Stang High School in North Dartmouth, Chris came to Bristol Community College for an affordable path to a bachelor’s degree. By starting here and enrolling in the MassTransfer program, he saved thousands of dollars on his degree. “It’s a gift to pass on to your children – zero debt after college,” Chris’s mom says. 

Small class sizes, attentive faculty and seamless transfer options led Chris on a path to success after Bristol. He is set to graduate from UMass Amherst’s Isenberg School of Management in May 2020. 

An affordable, high-quality education. Chris found this – and more – at Bristol Community College.
