Well…The First Week is Over!

The first week is over, Bakersfield College! How did it treat you? For me, it was a busy mish-mash of meetings, events, and time spent on campus meeting students.  To see the hustle and bustle of movement between classes, or the impromptu gatherings in the Free Speech Area and Cafeteria (it has been cold!!) really highlights the mission and vision of Bakersfield College.

On the Friday before classes, Bakersfield College’s staff gathered for our traditional Opening Day. The title for my talk was Honoring our past while boldly creating our future.  We will be posting my presentation on the website at http://www.bakersfieldcollege.edu/president/communications/. Bakersfield College’s future is bright, and for the next 18 months, we will be focused on the work outlined in the Strategic Focus document developed by Jennifer Marden and Kate Pluta.  You can find the pdf on the same website. Here are some photos from opening day.  Enjoy! And thank you for filling Forum West!
