    New Fall 2022

    Come out and hike with the BCC Faculty on Staff on their favorite Berkshire hikes.  Explore our beautiful county and spend time with our wonderful BCC Community.  

    • October 16th 3:30pm-5:30pm - The Cobbles with Celia Norcross, Dean of Students
      • To join the hike or get more information complete this form 
      • Celia says: "This is one of my favorite spots because it has beautiful views and doesn’t take all day to get to the top. Rather quick trip but still a great hike and nice scenic area in any season. I also like seeing all of the town areas and Cheshire Lake from this view on top!"
    • November 5th 9:45am - Mount Greylock with Jen Collins, Professor of Chemistry; Environmental and Life Sciences Department Chair
      • To join the hike or get more information complete this form 
      • Link to Meet Up Location & Hike Details
      • Jen says: "I hike to escape from the noise of the technological world.  I prefer to hear the sounds of the woods and see the views of the mountains and mother nature.  Stony Ledge is a beautiful spot on Mt. Greylock that looks out over other peaks rather than towns.  The hike is a gradual walk uphill through the woods.  No rock scrambling involved.  Suitable for beginner hikers that are comfortable walking at least 4 miles."

    The Paul E. Raverta Tennis Complex, which is open to the public, was made possible by the Berkshire Bank Foundation, Berkshire Bank Foundation—Legacy Region, Petricca Industries, USTA Western Mass, USTA New England, and USTA National.

Health/Fitness Requirement for Students

In these extraordinary times, we have made the difficult decision to waive Forum and the Heath Fitness requirements for students graduating through Spring 2023.
