4 College Freshman

Facilities: This school, unlike many others feels like family.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: There are a lot of great vies on campus, but many of the buildings are old and need to be updated.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: the small class sizes and religious aspect of the school are very valuable, you make friends easily and quickly and you never want to go home because you are afraid you will miss out on the fun.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: everything on campus is pretty close by and user friendly, everything is just old.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilites are ok, they just are old buildings. It would be nice if we had several newbuilding because the ones that have now are really outdated.

Newberry College's facilities are very well maintained and taken care of. The janitorial staff is always cleaning residence halls, picking up trash around campus, and maintaining the greenery. The student and athletic centers are the main focus of Newberry's facilities, and the main space is always kept clean and updated regularly. Newberry is known for its historic atmosphere, and the campus certainly doesn't disappoint. Some buildings are older than others but are still welcoming and clean. Everything on campus is taken care of and clean, the newest addition to the learning facilities at Newberry College is the Student Success center in Wessels Library. Wessels is very state-of-the-art and has brand new computers and printers available for student access. There are a lot of things students can do on campus, such as attend sporting events or go to sponsored events, like make your own stuffed animal, spray paint a bag, and make your own shades. Newberry is always improving and listening to students' advice.
