Peer Recruiters lead tours on Brazosport College campus

Wed Jan 18, 2017

Eighth-graders from Brazosport-area intermediate schools received a quick glimpse into college life recently thanks to the Brazosport College Peer Recruiters.

The BC Peers took students from Clute, Lake Jackson and Freeport intermediate schools on tours of the school’s campus. During the tours, the eighth-graders were also introduced to a variety of different programs.

More than 1,000 eighth graders from the three BISD schools participated in the tours

“These tours are very beneficial for the students because when they sit down with their eighth-grade counselors to plan their high school programs they’ll have a better idea of the career and educational opportunities available here at Brazosport College,” said Brazosport College Peer Recruiter Supervisor Glenn Campbell.

Among the areas toured were the BC Career Center, the Student Life department and the Clarion. Students also learned about the College’s nursing, process technology and drafting programs, as well as the Career and Technology Education program.

The BC Peer Recruiters are college students and ambassadors of Brazosport College. They do outreach activities through local schools, community events and special programs. To learn more about the Peers, call (979) 230-3486 or e-mail
