Classes Resume at SUNY Broome Community College
Classes are back in session at SUNY Broome Community College after the residents of on-campus housing moved in over the weekend of August 28.
BCC officials say 69 percent of the over 3,400 students are full-time with 55 percent Broome County residents. 38 percent of the students are from another county in New York State, 4 percent are from out-of-state and three percent hail from outside of the United States.
The way students are taking their courses is different from years gone by when professors taught live, in-person classes almost exclusively. This year, 41 percent of the students are taking traditional, campus-only courses. 35 percent of the students are taking a blend of campus and online instruction while 24 percent are totally online.
240 students moved into the Student Village over the weekend.
The first two weeks of the semester are mainly Welcome Weeks with several events planned for residential and commuter students including a movie at Otsiningo Park, a student employment fair and cornhole and basketball tournaments.
