Bakersfield College Archives

The Archives Association's purpose is to systematically attempt to capture and preserve Bakersfield College's history. The Archive Association collects donated materials and oral histories from employees and our community. So far, we have a great collection of art, clothing, photos, statues and memorabilia reflecting the very long-standing history of BC.
