4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school. Sometimes it feels a little small compared to other colleges but that's what makes it so great. I have essentially a one on one relationship with all of my professors. Due to the small student body I've had more opportunities available to me to advance in my field of study. Because it's a small school I'm know most, if not all, of my class members. The campus is beautiful and we have a very active student body. There is always something to do on campus. The only complaints I have is the meal plan and raising the cost of tuition.

Overall Experience: Berry College is the perfect fit for me! It is a great community and very welcoming. You can be as involved as you want to be but you will always love it more if you are involved.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think Berry is a wonderful place that supports growth of the individual as well as the mind, but it takes a particular type of person to go to school here and to make the best of it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Berry has a beautiful campus to explore. The community is really welcoming and offers many fun activities.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: make sure you keep your grades up, academic scholarships as worth it

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Beautiful and relaxing! everyone's freindly

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have received a $10,000 academic scholarship for each year if my GPA stays above a 2.0 however my HOPE scholarship is no longer in tact for my sophomore year as I have held a 2.7 for freshman year. I have also applied for FAFSA.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Absolutely everything involving space and amenities and even the convenience is amazing! The cost is a high but I understand what kind of economy we are in and that Berry College is a private school. The teachers are great and the academic value I receive is beyond what I expected!

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.

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.

4 College Freshman

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

5 College Freshman

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

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.
