Chicano/Latino Pre-Commencement Celebration

25th Anniversary Chicano/Latino Student Celebration

Date: May 3, 2019

Time: 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Location: Bakersfield College Outdoor Theater

This is the 25th Chicano/Latino Student Celebration and the purpose of this annual tradition is to encourage Chicano/Latino students to participate in celebrations that provides a cultural, bilingual and celebratory atmosphere for family and friends as they honor the achievements of their graduates and transfer students. The celebration gives our students an opportunity to acknowledge those who have been supportive of their educational endeavors. Finally, the celebration serves as an example for the younger generation and community that they, too, can achieve a college education.

To participate, you must apply and pay the $15.00 fee (includes sash/sarape). Sign up by April 28th for the celebration.
