High School Students to “Test Drive” BCCC
Beaufort County Community College will host seniors and juniors from area high schools to give students a feel for college classes. On April 16, the students will have a chance to “test drive” classes and enjoy other activities during BCCC’s Spring Fling, which is put on by the Student Government Association. Participating high schools included Mattamuskeet Early College High School; Pungo, Terra Ceia and Unity Christian Academies; and Washington County, Northside, Southside and Washington High Schools.
While on campus, students attended two classes from 18 different programs, such as medical lab technology, cosmetology, college transfer programs and automotive technology. They get to experience an average day for a college student, with many of the students seeing the campus for the first time. Spring Fling activities included carnival games, a live DJ, a lip-synching contest, a climbing wall, bungee basketball, and even Caprice, a wrestler from Ring of Honor. Students will also be voting on new SGA leadership that day.
To participate, students should get a permission form from their school counselor or call 940-6237.
Registration is now ongoing for summer and fall classes. Interested students can view schedules here.
