    Bakersfield College Overview

    BC was founded in 1913 and initially housed on the campus of Bakersfield High School (then Kern County Union High School) before moving in 1956 to its current location "on the hill" in northeast Bakersfield on the "Panorama Bluffs" that overlook the prolific Kern River oil field. BC is one of the oldest continually operating community colleges in the United States.
    The main campus is located on a 153-acre (62 ha) plot in Northeast Bakersfield, and it also operates two satellite campuses: the Weill Institute in downtown Bakersfield, shared by the Kern Community College District, and at the Delano Campus in Delano, California, approximately 35 miles (56 km) north of Bakersfield.
