What is “Destination: BMCC?”

A college isn’t just a place you go to school, it’s a destination full of opportunity! “Destination: BMCC” is the name of our open house events that take place every Spring, Summer, and Fall.

We know you have questions about the BMCC experience. This is your chance to step into the shoes of a college student for an afternoon! Stop in to sample our majors, connect with professors, make a plan to pay for school, meet our alumni, and more!

We are one of the top ten schools in the nation offering high-quality online education. Come experience for yourself our community and support!

This is the “choose-your-own-adventure” part of the open house (and our favorite part)! Choose a major that interests you and spend some time with a real professor from that department. Get a feel for our online classroom experience and have real teachers, current students, and graduates answer your questions about our majors.
