Homecoming Royalty is an honored and longstanding tradition of Bakersfield College’s Homecoming celebration. The Royalty nomination and selection process is a tremendous opportunity to showcase and recognize a few of the many outstanding students at Bakersfield College. The Homecoming Royalty Court is comprised of four (4) students who shall represent the College and student body at various campus and community events throughout the year.
The selection process for the Homecoming Royalty Court is based upon leadership activities, academic achievement, and campus involvement. An essay, resume, and headshot must be completed as part of the application process. All nominees will be initially interviewed and screened by a panel of judges, whom will select a maximum of 12 candidates for a title of the BC Royalty Court.
