The buildings at Berry are very eclectic, but they fit together quite nicely. They are well maintained, even if the grounds crew is known to drown out a lecture from time to time. Kilpatrick Commons is an outdoor area students have used to do a variety of things, ranging from performing poetry to holding dances sponsored by clubs and organizations. Many of the buildings have been recently renovated, including the Krannert Student Center and Dana Hall. In addition, buildings like Green Hall, Cook Hall, and the Science Building have updated classrooms. On the other hand, Evans Hall needs a complete overhaul in order to aesthetically compete with neighboring buildings.

The addition of the Cage and Morgan/Deerfield halls has given students a chance to see the aesthetic direction Berry is moving toward. These areas have state-of-the-art facilities for students and have added to campus a great deal of vibrancy ever since they opened in 2008 and 2010 respectively. The Cage offers a junior Olympic-size swimming pool, two racquetball courts, the MAC gym, a one-eighth-mile track, and high-tech workout areas. Aerobics classes are also held in the Cage, and there are two dance rooms to accommodate different class sizes.

"Green" Initiatives
The newest dorms, Morgan and Deerfield, are the greenest areas on campus. The lights turn off when motion is not detected, the bathrooms have dual flush toilets, and they feature BELL rooms that track the energy and water consumption of the students that live on a specific hall. In addition, dorms with elevators are now encouraging students to use the stairs (burning calories and not coal), only allowing elevator access when moving in or out, carrying groceries, or doing laundry.
School Slang
  • "Mofield": Morgan and Deerfield halls, the newest residence area on campus
  • Cage: The fitness center that opened in 2008; this is where the home basketball games are played.
  • D-hall: The one and only dining hall on campus, located in the Krannert Center
  • Ford: The dorms located in the Ford complex are Clara and East & West Mary. These are female dorms, and freshmen typically live here.
  • Stretch Road: The three-mile road that connects Berry's main campus to Mountain Campus
Traditions
Mountain Day Weekend: This is Berry's Homecoming weekend, and it's held over two days during the first weekend in October. Students are let out of class after 2 p.m. to compete with their residence halls in the Mountain Day Olympics on Friday. Saturday, the traditional march is held on Mountain Campus, and Marthapalooza, a fair free to students, is held that night.
Urban Legends
  • At the west end of CCC road are the ruins of an old church and cemetery called Mountain Springs Church. You can hear music coming from the church at night, along with crying and footsteps in the cemetery.
  • Between the dorms of East Mary and West Mary is a tower that has stood there ever since the College opened in 1902. Apparently, a Berry student hanged herself up in the tower and was not found for days. No one knows why she killed herself. The room where she died is now locked, but you can go to the door. It is inexplicably cold in the tower, even during the hot Georgia month of August, and if you wait there long enough in the dark, you can hear her crying her last cries just before ending her life.
  • CCC Road (also known as Seven Bridges Road) is a road on the northern side of Berry College. When you go west, if you count the small bridges as you go over them, there are seven. When you turn around, count them on the way out-there are only six.
Favorite Things To Do
Students love to enjoy the outdoor spaces around Berry, especially when the weather is nice. It's not uncommon for students to sunbathe and study in green areas near their dorms.
