Berkshire Community College Reviews

This college scammed me out of money and made me take a placement test that was supposed to tell them what classes I needed to be put in. Even though I passed the placement test and they told me I could start without having to take any refresher courses, they made me take a remedial math class where the teacher would just fail me without any explanation (They didn't do this until I mentioned I had just moved to the area from Florida so I have my suspicions that they thought I would be too stupid just based off that). I was in an Elementary algebra class even though I had taken (and passed) college math courses in high school. The teacher would mark test questions wrong even if I had them right because I would circle my answer in my work and not re-write it. At the end of the course the Professor told me to my face I'm too stupid for college. I have had family going to this school for generations and none of them have had a problem with the school.

This college exceeds many expectations for community colleges. All staff and professors are down to earth, understanding, and do everything they can to help you advance in life and succeed as a student. I have gotten a great education as a past student and will be attending again for their nursing program. They have so many classes and opportunities for this small area that many other communities are not lucky enough to have close.
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.
