Bainbridge State College students returned to the classroom on Wednesday to begin Fall Semester 2014, at both the main campus and Early County site.
Students are attracted to BSC for various reasons, but some students find the small, home-like atmosphere the most appealing aspect.
Kami Phillips, a sophomore, was drawn to BSC because of its friendly reputation.
She said, “It’s a small, friendly place and I get to know people here. There’s one-on-one contact with my financial and academic advisors, and with the professors. My teachers don’t know me by a number, but take the time to know my first name.”
Jo-Hannah Brock, a nursing program senior, also finds the small atmosphere appealing and helpful with her higher education.
“The teachers here are so interactive. They help and want us to learn,” she said.
For the 2014-15 year, Bainbridge State is pleased to announce its “One Matters” program, which is designed to let students know their educators and staff appreciate them and want them to succeed.
The program was presented to the faculty and staff during this year’s convocation.
Dr. Richard Carvajal, President of BSC, said, “One Matters is about lighting the path for those we believe in and showing them someone cares about their success and future.”
With new programs such as “One Matters” and the “home-like atmosphere” of the BSC community, an increase in enrollment is promising.
He said, “For the second year in a row, we have seen an increase in traditional age students to Bainbridge State College.”
