A boil water advisory remains in effect until at least Friday for the Melbourne Campus and surrounding areas. Please do not use the campus water fountains or drink unboiled tap water until further notice. Utility workers say handwashing is safe. The advisory was triggered by a lightning strike and power surge that impacted water pressure at a Melbourne water treatment plant and impacts about 150,000 people across southern Brevard County.

Students Present Singing Telegram in Gratitude

April 5, 2012, Brevard County, FL - Students from the BCC Theatre Department and Cocoa Drama Club presented a singing telegram to BCC administrators April 4 to express their thanks for funding that allows students to participate in productions such as “A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM” and  “A WOMAN CALLED TRUTH.”

The funds also provide for hiring guest artists to conduct workshops and allow students in theater classes to travel to Orlando to see professional plays. Several students recently attended the Florida Theatre Conference in Gainesville and the Southeastern Theatre Conference in Chattanooga, Tenn., where they participated in auditions and workshops.
