First Year Experience

Welcome to Bucks!

We provide new students with guidance, programming, and resources to help facilitate a smooth transition to Bucks County Community College by engaging them in programs related to personal and academic growth, navigating campus resources, building meaningful connections with others, and prioritizing well-being.

We strive to help first-year students:

  • Build a strong foundation of skills and strategies needed to be successful in college.
  • Navigate from the first year to their future at Bucks and beyond.
  • Inspire intellectual curiosity and build connections based on personal and academic interests.
