“BHCC was a wonderful experience for me. Studying and working there has transformed me professionally and personally. Coming in as an international student who did not know anyone, I immediately felt at home. I discovered my abilities, passion, created successful friendships, and thrived professionally. The community there is positive, focused, and ensures the success of its members.” —Lamya Nur, Eritrea
Another area of study that BHCC students have found success is through our STEM programs. There are opportunities for summer internships and mentorships with local companies. Mentors offer college guidance, financial opportunity, and emotional support.
