5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Our dorms are fairly new and come with great amenities.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: At Berea college we do not have Greek life at all.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Our sports are only because Berea care more about the students education than sports.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Berea college is amazing and liberating . My school allows for self growth both intellectual and mentally. My school prepares their students for the real world and open the door for new opportunities.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: All of the professor care so much about their subject and most are deeply invested in their students. With the exception of GSTR there is only one section of each course offered at a time. The variety is great in some subjects and very poor in others. The classes are really small and involve a lot of interaction and discussions.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Tell any job employer, etc. that you are a Berea student (graduate) they instantly put your worth up a few notches. The Career Center is super helpful from looking to applying and everything in between.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Students have access to free health care and free counseling, but the school is not always great about taking assaults (of any kind) seriously.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are far off campus, some do not have air conditioning, and some of the rules do not make sense. Usually the dorms are clean and have enough space.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The athletes are in their own bubble (and I am not one of them).

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Berea is the best because we get the opportunity to lean through work and study. The teachers and staff care so much about us and work to help us in any way they can.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am a part of Greek Life and it is excellent.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: With the work-study program, it gives a challenge.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really know that much about the Athletics here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Its pretty good academic wise but socially Berea is a little confusing. Since it's in a small town it can be hard to find stuff to do so most students get drunk and stuff but if that is not your idea of a good time then its hard to have "fun".

Health & Safety: This is a small campus with virtually no safety issues found in the community. The only issue is the lack of quality safety officers.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Jobs on campus don't pay much and there isn't much room for upward movement. There aren't a lot of pre-proffessional related jobs either.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Rules are too strict on visitation, cleanliness is an issue.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: We have no real greek life recognized by the college.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are simply not a priority at Berea.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have loved my professors and classes but Berea is very controlling and not always efficient.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: At Berea, academic success and development are what is most important. Sports do not play a central part in the school or school life. The dance teams are just as important as the basketball or baseball teams. Athletics are simply viewed as extracurricular activities that are healthy and fun to be involved in. They provide many beneficial physical and social experiences for athletes.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The experience at Berea College is so indescribable, but the best way to describe it is “a transformative experience.” For most students who come here, Berea College is far from home, so they have a feeling of being out on their own and doing things for themselves. The people at Berea definitely contribute to each student's overall experience because of the exposure to different backgrounds, races, religions, cultures, and perspectives. The diversity is a key component to a student's experience here because listening to others’ unique ideologies forces everyone to challenge themselves and grow mentally. And, the courses are as mentally stimulating as the diversified student body. Most Berea students also take advantage of the study abroad program. Traveling to different continents and countries introduces students to a different way of thinking and living, expanding their horizons even more.

Berea is so different from typical colleges—if you’re accepted, there is no reason to even consider not choosing this school as your future alma mater. The College prepares students for the real world. By being exposed to different people here, Berea students will know how to interact in an environment with a multitude of races, ethnicities, and perspectives surrounding them. Also, Berea’s labor program helps students improve their work ethic and learn new skills so they can graduate with the capacity to work in any situation. Overall, Berea College produces worldly students.
