Battle of the Programs at JBC

JBC students take a break from participating in the 2012 Battle of the Programs

JAMESTOWN –  Fall classes at Jamestown Business College (JBC) are in full swing – but recently, students took a little break for some friendly competition.

The annual “Battle of the Programs,” which takes place every fall at JBC, features a series of games and activities that allow students to earn points for their “team.” At program’s end, points are tallied and the winning team is treated to a pizza party.

Typical activities include lawn games, karaoke, and Facebook trivia competitions.

JBC Dean, Gretchen Lindell, said that she likes to observe the students as they have a little fun outside the classroom.

“This activity provides an opportunity for students to get to know faculty and staff, along with turning classmates into friends,” she said. “For most students, college is a new experience and it is important to develop the relationships that will allow for a comfortable transition.”

Jamestown Business College offers business-focused Associate and Bachelor degrees and certificate programs that include targeted professional development activities. For more information on registering for these programs, call 664-5100 or visit us online at
