Faculty, staff and students at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville are finalizing plans and making preparations in anticipation of the upcoming Fall Preview Day on October 23, 2015. The semi-annual open house event is the perfect opportunity for prospective students and their families to experience first-hand, the exciting and Christ-centered atmosphere at The Baptist College of Florida.

Registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. (CST) in the Wellness Center, located near the center of the campus. Upon registration, prospective students will have the opportunity to speak with faculty and staff representatives, resident hall advisors and division chairs, as well as obtain information on any of the twenty-three degree programs, financial aid, college life and computer access. Following this special meet and greet time, visitors will be able to attend a class that corresponds with their educational interests, audition for the music program, or attend a financial aid briefing that covers relevant topics such as, familiarization of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the tuition assistance and scholarship programs that are available to eligible BCF students.

After the classroom visits and informational briefings, prospective students will relocate to the iconic R.G. Lee Chapel which is one of the focal points on campus and visible on the BCF logo. Once inside, guests will enjoy the passionate student led praise and worship time followed by a welcome and message from BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen. Worship, service and missions are at the very heart of the BCF campus experience and Preview Day is designed to expose guests to all three.

Campus visitors will enjoy lunch together accompanied by a special performance by the BCF Jazz Band. After a time of fellowship, the Admissions Counselors will be available for campus tours of the prayer chapel, library, Writing Center, and computer lab, while BCF Resident Directors (RD’s) will provide tours of the dorms and on-campus housing options.

As the day concludes, the competition will heat up as the winning student intramural volleyball team will take on a faculty and staff team in a special Preview Day challenge volleyball game. During half-time, there will be a drawing for several $500 scholarships for prospective students. Every guest is a winner as the $25 Application Fee is waived for all prospective students who apply on Preview Day.

If you are looking for a college to prepare you to change the world, Preview Day is the perfect time to see if BCF is that place! To register for Preview Day or for more information, contact the Admissions Office at 800.328.2660 ext. 513 or register online at www.baptistcollege.edu.
