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!
I came in as a homeschool student, and my experience at Berkshire Community College was excellent. I came in as a homeschool student. Classes are mostly designed to transfer with a few exceptions, and most had under 30 students. Professors were excellent, and would get to know and work with students. If you have a specific degree program, you get a Academic advisor from your department to help you make the most of your classes and extracurricular activities to meet your goals.
There were many opportunities to get involved in clubs and organizations. I got to be an officer in Phi Theta Kappa, do service learning most semesters, and was a member of the STEM program. The Gym is excellent, though the pool is only open late spring to early fall. Club sports like basketball, soccer, wrestling, and track compete against top teams. The college is also very affordable, and my net cost was zero after financial aid and a few scholarships.
