One last thing, have you considered that each of you will be a BSC alum at some point? Our alumni love their time in the BSC and not only love to get together, they want to meet you. To support that, the BSC Alumni Association (BSCAA) welcomes you as soon as you graduate with free membership for your first year after graduation! With very affordable rates beyond that, the Association also has a policy that No One is Turned Away For Lack of Funds.

Two co-op alums, Portia Lewis & Elissa Roy, are helping with all these efforts. Reach out to them directly if you want any more info or just to talk! Portia Lewis; Elissa Roy

Already applied? How to reapply:

  • If you applied after August and kept the link to your application, you can just edit the application. Most important is that you update your availability for the Spring semester.
  • You should probably also take this time to spruce up your application. I made a page with some tips for filling out the application in a way that might get you interviewed. Check out these tips for applicants.
  • If you didn't keep the link, search your email for it. I have it set up to send confirmation emails. If you didn't get one, it might have gone to a hidden folder like "Updates" or (hopefully not) Spam. If neither of those, I think you can use the application link and if you're on the same machine and still have cookies, it will allow you to edit it. If none of that works, email me what jobs you're interested in and we'll figure something out.
  • If you applied PRIOR to August, email me what jobs you're interested in and we can figure it out so you don't have to redo that application.
