PITTSFIELD, Mass. — On Friday afternoon, Berkshire Community College ushered in a new era in Berkshire County sports and recognized a longtime civic leader in the process.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The transition from high school to college can be disorienting, perhaps even more so when you're trying to figure out not only what you want to study but where that study might take you.

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts has been trying to make the change a little easier for first-year students in its science, technology, engineering and math programs through the Berkshire Bank STEM Academy.

Now in its sixth year, the academy offers five days on campus meeting professors and likely classmates and trying out the labs in the new Feigenbaum Center for Science & Innovation. The program is entirely funded by Berkshire Bank.
