On August 21, 2013, Bakersfield College was closed so that all staff and faculty could attend the Opening Day celebration, including a Bakersfield College history tour and 100 year birthday cake.
Panels included "Reflections" - a history of Bakersfield College -- and a Student Discussion Panel featuring Bakersfield College's Student Government Association.
History Tours let participants learn about Bakersfield College's 100 year history, separated by presidential administration.
President Sonya Christian gave the State of the College address. In addition, employee awards were handed out, and participants could choose from several breakout sessions in the afternoon.
