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!

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!

We have great professors! They are all highly qualified and know their subject, most are very enthusiastic. They all are required to have a certain number of office hours a week and actually enjoy visits from students during office hours, they are ready to help, explain, or just talk. Workload can be a bit heavy and classes may be more challenging than other popular public state universities. Registration is always stressful but the college is helpful in making sure you reach all requirements. I am not familiar with all the study abroad options, but I do know, and am participating in, the honors college program where you can go to Glasgow in Scotland for a whole semester paying Berry tuition. I do know that you pay for all study abroad programs through Berry and most of the time scholarships earned can be applied to study abroad for at least one semester.
