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!

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.

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.
