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.

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.
