3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are like maybe four houses that throw parties off-campus. IF you hear about one, just go. BYOB. If you want to party, you can always find one. If you're not a partier, you're not alone, so don't fret. Most of the parties are pretty small compared to frat parties at other schools. But they're pretty welcoming and fun. If you don't want to be around weed, don't even go. There is no pressure to partake, but it's gonna be happening. There are only a couple clubs in town, and students don't usually go unless they know a lot of Berry students will be there. If pre-gaming is an option, just do it.

Nightlife: I never really hear about parties on campus.

Nightlife: NON EXISTANT – need i say more? The "clubs" are a joke. There are few parties on campus. If there is an off campus party be prepared to drive out to the middle of nowhere. Your best bet is to save up and go to Atlanta.

Rome doesn't offer many clubs for students, but the Krannert Center Activities Board (KCAB), the major event-planning group on campus, offers many options for students looking for something fun to do on the weekends. There are usually a variety of things to do, including comedy shows and dances, and on special weekends, "Casino Night" and "Spring Fling." Residence halls also host "Late Night Edition," in which resident assistants host an event after a comedian or another activity. One of the most popular ones was the "Rave in the Library."

Off campus, there are two bars that students try at least once with a group of friends: DJ's Tavern and 333 On Broad. These bars allow students to meet up with students from the neighboring college, Shorter University. Overall, students typically stay on campus and hang out with friends. At Berry, food is at the core of socialization, and restaurants often serve as the host sites for these get-togethers. It's not uncommon to see 20 Berry students at one restaurant, as options are limited, but the fun isn't. If students have one ounce of creativity in their body, they are sure to have a great time on or off Berry's campus.
