First Day of Fall 2018 Classes

Welcome to BCC!

Dear students at BCC,

Welcome to the first day of classes at Berkshire Community College! Today is one of my favorite days of the year. One of the great things about working in education is the natural cycle of our year. We wished our graduates luck with their next steps back in June and today we dream with you about the day that you walk across the stage at Tanglewood to earn your certificate or degree.

All of the faculty and staff at BCC are so excited to work with you this year, and we collectively are honored that you have chosen to study with us. We believe that you’ve made a smart choice to attend BCC. The investment you have made in yourself was spot on because we provide you with an excellent education, with small class sizes, and faculty and staff who want to personally help you reach your full potential.

We are also mindful that many students run into challenges during their college careers, and that’s another great reason to have chosen BCC. We have people here that are committed to helping you. If you ever have a question, or a challenge, be it academically, socially or personally we have people who can help you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at any time. You can email me directly at or call my office at 413-236-2142 and I’m committed to either help you myself or connect you with the right person.

I truly wish you a great start to your academic year! Please don’t hesitate to reach out any time!
