Bakersfield College is a public community college with an open admissions policy. The institution houses the William M. Thomas Planetarium, a 36-foot dome with a Chronos star projector, and the Levan Center, which focuses on research that promotes the humanities. BC provides the Umoja ASTEP program, the African-American Success Through Excellence and Persistence program, which provides attentive counselors to ensure degree attainment. They also welcome DACA students.
BC offers an amazing culinary and nursing program. The class sizes are manageable and every professor I have had are always willing to help students. The campus community is very good.

Despite the fact that Bakersfield College is not a big name college, like UCLA or UCSD, it offers some great opportunities to succeed. the campus is farely nice and the library is a comfortable place to study at. Even my economic professor, Mr. Harvath, is the best teacher I have ever had; my overall intake of Bakersfield College is that it is a good starting place for the future.
