Staff are very approachable. Instructors open to discuss most issues you have with material concerning their respective class.

Question
If you are stuck in the Berkshires itsBrightAnimal Studies
If you are stuck in the Berkshires its a really great school. The teachers are always willing to help you out even if you aren't in their class. Your GPA will go up if you go here. Don't take the Animal Care Program because you can work in MA as a vet tech without it. Great school if you don't know what to major in. Very afforable.

Question
I only came here b/c my financial aidBrightNursing
I only came here b/c my financial aid fell through everytime I tried to go away to school. I'm biased because I would have preferred to go away to school. (Also I'm technically in pre-nursing waiting for the nursing program.)

This is an all right school. Staff's pretty good. Classes are all right. For what you get out of your standard run-of-the-mill community college. Liberal school which is good or bad depending on what you like.

Campus aesthetics are no big thing--it's a public junior college, so don't expect a sprawling lawn before a beautifully painted palace.

Social life? Not much going on. Pittsfield is an okay city, not thrilling but not absolute nothingness either.

Extracurricular activities aren't much--a couple of clubs, mostly liberal political things, you'd like it if you're into that.If you wanna stay local and keep a life going outside of school, I'd have to give BCC a nod. If you're into campus life, are conservative or Christian (no Christian anything here), or want a really, really challenging school (I'm not trying to rag on academics--they're good here for a junior college, obviously you're not getting Harvard), I suggest looking elsewhere.
