THE BRONX -

Students at Bronx Community College took a break in between final exams Thursday for a special celebration marking the school's 60th anniversary.

Cheers and African drums kicked off the day full of festivities, and students were eager to show off their school spirit.

The college president says the goal is to help educate a new generation of students over the next 60 years.

"I see the institution playing more of a role in the community in the city and the borough. We are coming up with new programs," says President Thomas Isekenegbe.

The university is also marking the launch of a new app that aims to help students navigate campus life and their daily workload.
