BCC Commencement 2020

 Virtual Commencement - May 29, 2020 at 4:30 PM via telecast

Berkshire Community College has wrestled with how to appropriately celebrate this important moment in your lives while also protecting all those who would want to participate. 

Given a great deal of uncertainty, we have decided to celebrate you twice

For the first celebration we will have a virtual Commencement on Friday, May 29 at 4:30 pm, replete with pomp and circumstance, and televised on PCTV.  It will include speeches and an individual recognition of each student.

Upload your photos for inclusion in the Commencement ceremony!

We will also have a combined physical Commencement at Tanglewood for the Classes of 2020 and 2021, on Friday, June 4, 2021. 

 While this could of course never replace the experience of an in-person Commencement, we are working hard to create the spirit and joy of this very special day in a virtual setting.

We know this is not what any of us anticipated as a way of celebrating the 60th Commencement of Berkshire Community College.  Each of us wants to make this event meaningful, and though we would prefer to be physically together, our goal is to ensure that you are recognized and honored with pride and joy by our entire community on Commencement day.  

We promise to make it special for you, and look forward to celebrating you both virtually on May 29, and physically next year.

 Friday, May 29, 4:30 PM
