Student Life and Involvement Opportunities
During their freshman year, Bridge students are enrolled full time at TCTC, granting them access to all TCTC academic success services and student life opportunities. These opportunities include joining student organizations and participating in scheduled student activities. Bridge students also have access to many of the events and activities at Clemson, as well as the ability to be involved with student organizations and intramural sports.
Bridge Leadership Council
Bridge Leadership Council (BLC) is a programming and event planning body that is very similar to a student council or student government. BLC members plan fun and meaningful events to help students transition to and get involved in the college community. Past events include study breaks, building competitions, dances, movie nights, bonfire nights, pool parties, and the very popular Thanks for Giving dinner. BLC is completely student run. Elections are held at the beginning of the year for positions such as President, Activities Coordinator, Treasurer, and Building Representative. Holding a leadership position provides a great opportunity for students looking to get involved during their college career. All students, elected or not, are welcome to get involved, plan events, and serve on committees. There are endless opportunities to make an impact and get involved! Talk to your RA and attend an info session to get more information.
