Although the education system in the United States is far from perfect, BCC does a great job at supporting students. They offer many resources on and off campus to help students be successful and accomplished. The experience I have had there so far has definitely helped my academic confidence. It's a great school for high schoolers looking for a second chance, people who are unsure of what they want to do, or students from all different walks of life who want to explore their passions or interests.

From the very first day I started at Berkshire community college years ago, the staff was very supportive. I applied to a bunch of different schools and got accepted such as Maria, Mildred, Hudson valley, Belanger ect. None of them had the kind of dedicated staff and teachers like Berkshire community college. I just got excepted into the LPN nursing program in the fall and I could not have done it with out the help of my advisor and admissions and the financial aid department and the tutor center. They aren't only there to do their job they go above and beyond. If I need help someone is always there. They take the time to talk to you and explain things. I went back to the financial aid department and hugged the girl that helped me figure out my fasfa and billing. It's a totally different atmosphere at Berkshire community college. Your not just a number your a person with a name that they all remember. I am proud to say I go to Berkshire community college.
I wouldn’t be in college if it wasn’t for Berkshire Community College! They have helped me every step of the way! I never thought I would make it to college and hear I am almost done. When I finish classes I’m about a year I will graduate with my associates degree. This cohort was the best thing for me!
