The Binghamton University Parents Collective (BUPC) is a graduate student organization that works to form a mutually-supportive community of graduate students with children. We seek to make the campus more family-friendly and offer parents the opportunity to take advantage of low-cost, community and educational activities. These include playgroups, trips to the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park and Discovery Center (we have group membership!), as well as trips to u-pick fruit orchards, local parks, and places such as Skate Estate and Aero Gymnastics. We also arrange educational lectures and workshops on a variety of parenting issues. We welcome your ideas and energy!
