It's a tight-knit community, which is really nice. The dorms are currently being renovated, one at a time, so things are a little cramped in the meantime, but the renovations are very nice and eco-friendly. My dorm is literally right next to the building that most of my classes and secondary labor position are in, which is awesome. The rooms are small, but hey, it's a dorm room. The "janitors" are all students, so it depends on who you get as to how well they do. Usually freshman aren't as enthusiastic, and I can see why, but the dorm coordinators do a great job of motivating them kindly. Then, everyone is happy! The housing processes is done by lottery number. Since I'm staying in the same room next year, I got the choice before the lottery ran, and it was super easy since they've converted it to an online process.

Wait what is our mascot?? It is probably a daunting task for a coach to recruit any student-athlete to a school like Berea. I do not see how they landed such good students in the first place. Most students do not even know when sporting events are going to be held. The atmosphere for sports is worse than high school if you went to a decently sized high school. Students at Berea are just not that receptive of sports. Your make up of fans include freshman who want to bring school spirit to campus, and very few upperclassmen. Students have even been seen to study during the games! Its a sad sight.

I love Berea College! The administrators and academic advisers really care about the students. They are involved in their students' lives and get to know them. To them we are not just a number on a piece of paper, we are people. Out of all of the schools I read about and visited, only Berea College made me feel as though not only my education but my personal well-being also mattered to them!
