New Student Programs

Welcome to the Borough of Manhattan Community College! Congratulations on choosing to Start Here –and Go Anywhere. This is a very exciting time to be a CUNY student on our campus. The New Student Programs team is here to help introduce you to all that BMCC has to offer.

  • First Year Experience (FYE) is a six-week series of workshops that meet once a week for 50-minutes. FYE is designed to assist all new, incoming students in their pursuit for success within their first-year at BMCC and beyond.
  • S.T.A.R. Ambassadors are student-employees who serve New Student Programs and the Office of Student Affairs many roles, including assisting in facilitating FYE workshops.
  • Panther Partners is one of the flagship programs of New Student Programs that serves first-generation college students in their first year and beyond at BMCC.

First, meet your New Student Programs team.
