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.

2 College Student

Greek Life: Berry doesn't have normal Greek life on campus. since the student body is small, Berry only has Greek life for the music program and the honor societies.

4 College Student

Athletics: Berry has a relatively new state of the art gym on campus called the Cage Center. Some of the hours are a bit weird and it can be packed however the facility is very nice. Also, since Berry sits on a very large campus there is plenty of space for outdoor activities.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Berry is a great school that has tons of activities for students to participate in. The average course load here is way more challenging than most would expect. Although, Berry does have a good amount of resources for students to use.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The quality of courses is amazing - they aren't easy at all. But, the professor go out of their way to help students.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Berry sends a lot of people to graduate school, and many people have jobs right out of college.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Berry is a super safe place. People routinely feel safe enough to go on night walks to enjoy the scenery.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: This really depends on where you live. Some places a newer and nicer, while others have not seen renovations in a long time.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: At Berry, the professors care about your success. They go out of their way to meet with you and make sure you understand what is going on.

2 College Senior

Athletics: Generally speaking, berry college is not a sports college. People play sports, and some are even good, but its not a huge following. Laxbros aren't fun to interact with. Athletics facilities are new, as well as the stadium.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is never campus crime. I can leave my computer in the library, go eat across campus, come back and it will still be there untouched. I always feel safe. Campus security is always driving around campus. Police are always a call away.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are usually events every week regarding internships or future job opportunities. There will always be options for you to take a hold of.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are always willing to help. All my professors have known me by name. They are all very passionate about their fields at that makes classes more fun.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It really depends on where you live. There are two dorms that need to be renovated but the other ones are either average or really great.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: we don't have greek life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Since I am an athlete I see the inside of everything. The football players are exalted, but that's also because we have a new stadium and only three year old football program. Other sports people care about and attend but not as much as the football games.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors at Berry are wonderful. They are always willing to give me help if I need it and are very punctual when responding to emails. Classes are challenging but that's because Berry is a more rigorous school. There are plenty opportunities to become a better student. I have learned a lot at Berry. There are so many options for extracurricular activities so you will always be able to get involved.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: They are pretty good here but not a major part of the community.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love it here. It challenges me and is helping me become who I am. I hope to continue my work here.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We have a new stadium so that is pretty awesome. Beyond that, everything else is okay. When track is in the weight room so are other sports teams and its not a very big weight room so it gets crowded.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most the professors here are caring and nice, and it is a beautiful campus so plenty to explore. I also like that you are guaranteed a job on campus.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: As a liberal bisexual woman (who is also Catholic), things could certainly be worse here. However, there is a horrible lack of diversity at this school. Everyone is Christian. Everyone is white. Everyone is heterosexual. And then there are the people not afraid to live freely outside of what everyone listed above is. I don't feel threatened as someone who bisexual and liberal, but sometimes I certainly feel unaccepted.

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.
