Spring 2023 Commencement Ceremony

BCC held Commencement at Tanglewood on Friday, June 2. Read about keynote speaker, Edson Chipalo! Watch the live recording on PCTV's Facebook page.

We are overjoyed to be celebrating our students in a manner that befits their accomplishments, and we encourage our community to join us in celebration.

Commencement is a graduation ceremony that takes place each spring semester. It is an end-of-spring semester celebration for students projected to successfully complete all of their graduation requirements. Our BCC students are commencing on toward something greater — after having successfully earned their certificate or degree — and are ready to use their skills in the workforce or continue on to a four-year school after they graduate.
