The purpose of The BCC is to bring together likeminded people who are interested in learning about cars. The BCC allows members to get hands-on experience in the car community through car shows, and informational meetings.
President CJ York shares: “We don't solely want people that are interested in cars to join, in fact, we ultimately want to better-educate people about the automotive world. One of our ultimate goals is to host a car show on Bentley's campus every spring, starting with the spring of 2020. We look forward to meeting new prospective members at the club fair, so be sure to come by and check out our table and one of our surprise guests and sponsors!”
Bentley Open Market Committee:
The Bentley Open Market Committee (BOMC) is Bentley’s only economics-devoted organization on campus. The group meets every other Tuesday at 2 pm to collectively discuss and debate various economic topics in both Micro and Macroeconomics. The group’s abbreviation was inspired by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) that is responsible for setting and maintaining monetary policy in the United States.
Bentley Association of Board and Tabletop Games
BABT is a new organization on campus that seeks to fulfill the student body' desire for all things that can be played on a table! We understand that despite the face that a large portion of students that have a passion for board games, it is sometimes difficult to find time, space, players and the games themselves. We seek to rectify the issue by providing a plethora of games and players. Visit our table during activity fair to get on the email list, or just email SM_BABT@bentley.edu.
