For more than 50 years, Kellogg Community College has been the go-to destination for community members looking to jump-start their education or career.

Each year has seen the college grow and expand to enrich the lives of more and more of our community’s future leaders, and the 2013-14 promises to be no different.

Here is the third installment of a series we’re rolling out over the next few days on this blog to highlight just a few of the reasons that make this year a great one to be a Bruin.

Campus life

KCC’s Student Life office presents a variety of events and activities for KCC students each semester, which this year will include concerts, field trips and other activities.

Bruin Blast, the college’s annual welcome back event for students, was held earlier this month on the North Avenue campus, and other welcome back events are planned for this week at the college’s regional centers. The college celebrated Constitution Day last week with events that included District Judge Michael Schipper as a guest speaker, and events celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month and a Volunteer and Civic Engagement Fair are also planned.

Student Life events in October will include a trip to see a Broadway show in Chicago; transfer college tours; the college’s annual Scary Movie Night; and events observing National Coming Out Day.

November will include a Transfer Fair and events observing Native American Heritage Month, while December will feature Stress Busters events to help students relax before finals.

Each month will also include performances held as part of KCC’s Coffeehouse Concert Series, which last year included concerts featuring artists from a variety of musical genres.
