About Multicultural Student Services Organization (MSSO)

Berkshire Community College recognizes the diversity within our communities and has made a strong commitment to cultural diversity within its student body.  While we are a relatively small college, BCC reflects the diversity of our local communities and the world.  BCC's students are a combination of various social, economic, religious, political, national, ethnic, racial and cultural backgrounds.  In addition to students from local communities and neighboring states, BCC is the choice for students from over 20 different countries representing Asia, Africa, Europe, Central America, South America and the Caribbean.        

MSSO Students


The Multicultural Student Services Office provides leadership in creating a welcoming and engaging campus for students from ethnically and culturally diverse backgrounds so that they are able to thrive and achieve their full potential.

We invite you to visit our office whether you need to inquire about your educational journey, want to express concerns or have ideas that promote cross cultural understanding.

The Multicultural Students Services Organization (MSSO) blog is designed to be a place where students, faculty, and the community at large can access MSSO news, upcoming events, semester highlights, pictures and pertinent information.

ALL international students with an F-1 visa are required to subscribe to the instant email notification in order to stay as informed as possible in matters regarding their college/visa status.  MSSO members can also have access to a dedicated site where they can get the latest information on MSSO projects and participate in online discussions.

The MSSO blog was launched in June 2010, therefore it is still quite new.  We know that with time it will become a familiar blog and the information posted on it will improve in quality.  For the meantime we invite you to explore the blog and grow with us.
