New Student Convocation

New Student Convocation 2022

New Student Convocation will be live and in-person this year!
Bakersfield College is excited to usher in the new academic year with our students. As part of that tradition, BC hosts the annual New Student Convocation. The word convocation literally means a “calling together,” which means you will now become part of the Renegade community. Beyond welcoming you to the community, we will also provide critical information about navigating college life, the importance of getting involved on campus, making the most of your time here, and strategies for being successful. 

Tuesday, August 16, 2022
5:30 p.m.
All registered students receive a special BC item after attendance at the event.
