Blue Mountain Community College reflects its commitment to Students First in that students feel valued, supported, and encouraged by the campus community from the time they decide to enroll until they complete their educational goals.  Students respond to this commitment through their engagement, persistence, and successful completion of their educational goals.     (est. 1/25/16 by the BMCC Students First Advisory Council)
