Bakersfield College’s student newspaper, the Renegade Rip, has been in existence for 85 years and continues its tradition as one of the top community college publications in the state.

The students also maintain a 24/7 online edition,, and have produced five editions of the Dissenter magazine in the past four years.
The newspaper publishes in broadsheet form during the fall and spring semesters on a biweekly basis. It distributes 3,000 copies per edition.

Success stories
