Tokyo isn't the only Olympic venue in town this year! Join us for the BCC Olympics throughout Wolf Welcome. We'll be offering six weeks of Olympic events and activities to help connect you to BCC, the resources available to you, and each other.

How it works:

  • Participate in BCC Olympics events throughout the first six weeks of classes.
  • Earn medals on behalf of your Career and Academic Community each time you participate in an event.
  • For each medal you earn, stop by Student Life to get a ticket to enter drawings for a variety of prizes that will be handed out during our Closing Ceremonies.
