3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Havent really explored this option but a couple friends of mine have and the process can be a bit frustrating.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are not many parties on campus but I am not the party-type person. The best parties, I hear, are thrown by the lacrosse team but I never went.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It is just your typical restaurants that you would find anywhere.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They are sure to keep everyone in check but it can get annoying because it sometimes seems as though they automatically assume you are doing something wrong.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: With the school being so expensive, it is hard to get enough scholarships to lower the price. The scholarships they have available are extremely hard to get.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: It almost seems like they trick you when you come for a campus visit. The food seemed diverse and delicious, but that is only because thats the one day they actually take the time to create diversity. Every day is pasta and chicken. Every, single, day. The cookies are to die for though...

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really enjoyed where I lived this past year, Morton/Lemley. Although the building is very old and outdated, it creates a homie feel.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not a plethora of options, and the area isn't made for it.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not much of a party person, but the ones I went to had okay entertainment.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of off-campus options that are close and excellent.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They discourage maliciousness, but encourage mischievousness.

Scholarships: They're very helpful and cooperative, but a bit expensive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It lets you survive by providing some nutrition. Definitely could be improved.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in the economy dorms. It was a good experience.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't really looked into off campus housing at all.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are alot of local restaurants that keep with Southern traditions.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party at all. Me and my friends just hangout, go downtown, or travel and sing in the car.

Administration: Administration has been working very hard with students to help adjusts and update policies.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid is very willing to help, but they can't always give you exactly what you need.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dhall food is okay, but you kinda get tired of it after a while. Valhalla's a great alternative only you have to use flexbucks or real money.

Off-Campus Housing: It may be cheaper but Berry will fight to keep you on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of fast food options for the late nights. If you want good food though you have to go during the day on Broad street or to Amurchee.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: You have to make your own party. Go to the peach.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Berry is a dry campus, so if you get caught with alcohol you will have serious consequences. Parking tickets and things like that get expensive with multiple offenses. They will find any type of way to fine you at this school. Berry does not play games about cheating or plagiarism.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I love my scholarship group. Most of them are competitive to get into to. Pathways for teacher education is for minority teachers.

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.
