White Mountains Community College, located in Berlin, is part of the Community College System of New Hampshire. The college was established in 1966 as the New Hampshire Vocational Institute, and faculty members greeted the first class of 104 students with the purpose of preparing "qualified high school graduates as skilled workers to meet the needs of the state."
