Launched in February 2016 by our Board of Trustees, the GROW BMC initiative has generated both tremendous excitement and tremendous activity on the campus of Blue Mountain College. Resulting in record enrollments for both the fall and spring semesters of the 2016-17 academic year, GROW BMC is in full swing.
Critical to the progress of our growth plan is the development and enhancement of our campus facilities to support an active and engaging living and learning environment. In addition to the major projects currently underway, such as the Sportsplex, the expansion of residential housing, and renovations to the Palmer-Donnell house, a number of other projects have been completed, including the installation of a new roof on Lowrey, painting and technology upgrades in Garrett, the installation of a new gym floor in Tyler, and the replacement of numerous sidewalks across campus.
The table below includes the items on the College’s “wish list” of projects. With your help we can complete many of these projects before the 2017-18 academic year begins in August!
For more information about any of these projects, please feel free to give me or Jody Hill a call. Thank you for helping us to GROW BMC!
