5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Don't drink. Don't do drugs

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Residential college. Dorms are decent in space. Furniture is a little mix-matched, but of the same style. Resident halls are cleaned up and revamped when needed. Resident Advisors make students feel welcome and comfortable from move-in. ("Berry Bellhops" help carry freshmen's items to rooms on move in day!) Fair rules and decent compliancy.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: While not a division 1 school, sports teams are highly valued on campus. Sports events are attended as a community. Berry College also offers a wide variety of sport and exercise equipment and classes to non-athletes. The facilities are new and very well maintained.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are intent on giving students the best learning experience. Classes are meant to be engaging and give students hands on experience for a well-rounded education. Berry College provides a variety of jobs on campus to all students who wish to work. Jobs are scheduled to not conflict with any classes. People are very friendly, close-knit environment. Good sense of community. Beautiful campus!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My first semester at Berry, I was very unhappy and wanted to find another school. However, I ended up finding something else: great friends, classes I enjoyed, and campus activities. Berry has become a place I miss when I'm away on breaks, and I would pick it again.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think getting a degree from Berry is valued highly. Of course, it's not like an Ivy League degree but locally Berry is known as a great school. Especially for students hoping to go to vet school, like I am!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I LOOOVE my academic advisor!!! He was also my professor for Intro to Animal Science and Orientation to Animal Science. He's a nice guy and he's funny! When things got bumpy for me a couple of time during my first year, he always reached out to me to see if I was okay! I also love my honors advisor, Dr. Whelan. I liked the way she conducted class (she was my Writing & Rhetoric professor). I also like how she cares about the honors program and all of her students! My favorite class so far has been Intro to Animal Science because we got so much hands on experience so quickly!! I definitely wasn't expecting that. It was amazing.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: My room was broken into this past year so of course I'm biased. I wasn't in the room at the time but the violation of privacy has significantly decreased my trust in Residence Life and the general population of Berry. I did, however, think Berry was very safe until that incident happened. I could leave my laptop out in the library and run to my dorm an return without anything happening to it. Berry is *generally* safe, but I definitely don't like how the administration treats sexual assault/sexual misconduct cases.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: IF you live in Morgan/Deerfield, living in a dorm is great. Anywhere else is.... just okay. There are bug problems in Ford. Dana has sinks, but the rooms are small. Morton/Lemley has gone the longest without any renovations. I lived in Dana my freshman year and my roommate moved out early in the year, and I never got a new roommate. So, my experience was probably a lot better than others since I didn't have a roommate. Dana is loud. My hall bathroom was never super dirty, but I've heard horror stories about other places. I like Dana's location, but I like Morgan/Deerfiled better since I am a science major and the science building is right next to Morgan/Deerfield. Dana is very close to the library, which is great!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience as a young Afro-Latina at Berry has been interesting to say the least. I love my friends and I love my professors, but there are some very hateful and/or ignorant people on campus that make my experience less than it should be. I've loved all of my animal science classes so far because they're really fun and I'm finally learning about what I love. I think I would chose Berry again if I had to do everything over BUT I would try to steel myself for the hardships of being a minority in a severe majority.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers I have met so far seem supportive.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Berry offers great opportunities for internships.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Berry tries its hardest to be a very safe campus

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms can be outdated but are always tidy and clean.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: We do not have Greek life at Berry.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far, everyone has been welcoming and encouraging.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree is highly valued

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love everything about Berry

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: still a slight chance of worry

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Administration and offices work together with me.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: Berry has a very low crime rate especially compared to other schools. This doesn't mean that Berry is perfectly safe though.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: The class sizes at Berry are very small which is great. Unfortunately a lot of the professors at Berry aren't the best at teaching (specifically in the math and science departments). If you choose to major in one of these categories prepare to teach yourself or choose a different major!

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Berry had a great program where every student has the opportunity to work on campus and hold a part-time job while they are studying. Most Berry students are able to get internships while they are attending Berry and when they graduate.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Besides one building, the dorms at Berry are very old. The paint is peeling on most of the walls, the community bathrooms and other amenities are not very clean. The rooms have a moldy smell and most of the buildings have issues with pests (ie: roaches, spiders, rats, etc.) The layouts of the rooms are also a bit weird in some of the buildings.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

First and foremost, Berry is not for everyone. People who realize this do so early on and typically end up transferring; however, for the students Berry is for, it can become a second home and one of the most amazing times in students' lives. Berry has a community feel, which is unique when compared to a large school. The professors, students, faculty, and staff all strive to make Berry an experience many want to relive. The leadership opportunities are unparalled to other schools because many students have created the positions they currently hold. Questions like, "Are you involved?" don't come up; rather "How many clubs and organizations are you in?" and "What job(s) do you have?" are conversation-starters for many students. 

In addition, Berry is not a party school. Of course, there is the occasional off-campus party, that is usually busted for underage drinking, but because Berry comes with a $33,000 price tag, many students are not willing to waste that type of money and put their academics before anything else. All transitions into college are difficult, but Berry offers many different support systems throughout campus to maximize your potential. One complaint heard campus-wide is about how strict the campus can be. For instance, there is an attendance policy at Berry that you won't find at other schools. If you miss more than three unexcused absences, your grade is subject to being docked. While the complaint is a valid one, it's not likely to change and is something that is heavily enforced. In some departments, missing one class may mean your grade is in jeopardy, so make sure an absence is absolutely needed and cannot be held, or that there is communication with your professors to make other arrangements (e.g., sitting in on an earlier section of the same class). They are very flexible and willing to work with you; after all, they are there to see their students succeed.
