Something for Everyone at Destination: BMCC


Check In

10-11a.m. |  All of us at Borough of Manhattan Community College are eager to welcome you to campus during Destination: BMCC! The first thing you will do when you arrive is Check In.

It is a breeze when you print your “boarding pass” ahead of time. We will email your boarding pass eight days before the event, and the night before, too. If you print your pass, you may join the Priority Check In line, hand us your paper, and get to all the fun stuff faster!

Not sure how to print your boarding pass? >>>

"Meet the Crew:" Student Resources Fair

10a.m.-12p.m. | We don’t think anyone should have to go it alone in college. That’s why BMCC has dozens of opportunities to get involved and find services that can support you as you succeed. 

Come meet our “crew” at the Student Resources Fair, located just beyond the main lobby. Tutoring, low-cost childcare, career development, study abroad, and financial aid will all be there! And — back by popular demand — ASAP, BMCC Learning Academy, College Discovery, and more student success programs will be available to tell you how to earn a free Metrocard.

Faculty Meet & Greet

12:45-3p.m. | During most of the afternoon, you will attend mini-lessons in two academic majors you are curious about. What?! Just two?  What if I want to learn about more? Or, what if all the majors I’m interested in are offered in the same time slot? 

Never fear! For the Faculty Cafe is here! Stop by the BMCC Express office located at 255 Greenwich Street to meet professors whose presentation you missed. Grab a snack and learn more about what we do in the classroom.
