WELCOME TO BACONE COLLEGE
We would like to extend a warm Bacone College welcome to those of you who are the newest members of our community and a welcome back to our students returning for continued studies at Bacone College.
To make your transition into this academic year as successful and rewarding as possible, Student Affairs is pleased to provide you with this Student Handbook. Your college years are a time of personal and spiritual growth and discovery. This handbook will introduce many of the different opportunities available to you at Bacone College and in the local community.
We hope that this academic year will prove to be a productive learning experience for you, one that will be conducive to intellectual discovery, bring you to a variety of campus events, involve you in a recognized student organization or a sports team, lead you to actively participate in community service, and perhaps engage you in artistic creation.
