Generations of BC students: Following in family's footsteps
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — It's a new year at Bakersfield College - it's 100th year.

It's also the third day on campus for Colby Chase.

"I've been walking around getting to know the campus," said the Highland High School graduate. "It already feels like home to me."

The campus has been home to a Chase family member before.

Colby Chase's great-great-aunt Josephine Chase was part of BC's first class in 1913.

For Colby Chase, who's planning on studying biology and chemistry, it means a lot to be able to follow in his family's footsteps.
