3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It's okay, but getting worse.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I probably won't get a job with my degree after college.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Most of the security is nice and active. Some are mean. I actually do feel safe

1 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: They try to FORCE you to live on campus. In this way, the college treats the students like little children, which many are, actually.

1 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Loud and obnoxious. They spit in peoples' food

1 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I got ripped off by the athletic program while I was here.

1 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: While, many professors are great in the English department, most professors in other departments are bad. The food is bad. The college tries to force you to live on campus, and if you live on campus, they force you to buy a meal plan. Lots of loud dumb people. A lot of the employees are backstabbers and scammers.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. The security guards are friendly and constantly ride around to make sure everything is in order. I feel like I am protected.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There usually are a lot of alumni who come back offering their help and guidance. I think on the outside a degree from Newberry College is taken seriously, because of our overall graduation rate and success academically.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: The only bad part about newberry is that it is small. the more expensive houses have a lot of room but the average ones are small and tight. The social atmosphere is fun and exciting to live near friends

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I myself will probably never pledge but I do see the benefits in pledging but I dont see myself going through with it.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The school's spirit when it comes to the athletics is okay. Some people have sports they would rather see but over all a lot of Newberry's events revolve around sports. mostly everyone who attends is either in a sport or over all very fit.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: So far my experience at Newberry College has been great if I could I would relive my freshman experience. I made lots of friends and got really close with my professors. I was shocked to see that professors were so friendly and actually cared about you as a student. The small classes honestly made it easier to concentrate and stay focused. Also i feel like Newberry is a family environment. My college experience has been amazing with different events that Newberry holds that makes the whole experience unforgettable. If I had it to do over again I would say yes to Newberry College over again.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far my experience has been really good. There is a variety of courses offered and the class sizes are great.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at Newberry.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are in dire need of renovations. They are very old and very tiny. In the freshman dorms there is not even a sink in your room. You have to go down the hall for everything, even to rinse out a cereal bowl, wash your face, etc. The beds and the furniture are also very old. Doesn't seem like the sophomore dorms are much better. I realize that it is an older college and I love the history at Newberry but a little renovations could go a long way.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I guess my only issue would be the fan support for women's sports at Newberry, especially soccer. I would love to see more of the students come out and support our team.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Newberry because it is a small school and community where everybody knows each other and it's not at all overwhelming like a bigger school would be. You feel like family at Newberry with your professors, your advisors and your teammates. ( I play soccer). It also feels safe to be at Newberry, you never hear about bad things happening there like you do at bigger campuses. I am looking forward to my next 3 years at Newberry!

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I myself joined Greek Life when I joined the Newberry College wolf pack. It was by far the best decision I have made, Greek life at Newberry helped me gain lifelong friends, help the community, and gain leadership skills.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Newberry College does a great job at getting students, athletes of other sports, and professors involved in every sport on campus. The athletic Facilities are great and are used well.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Newberry College is my home away from home. I have grown, learned, and gained many things while attending Newberry College. There is no other school I would rather spend 4 years at!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: we have had some problems on campus about crime, but I felt secure and safe on campus. they required us to have a walking buddy when walking at night and had hours that we had to be in the dorms, only for the short period of time in which the crime was going on. the security is very helpful and would do anything to protect this campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the professors at this school. they are very dedicated and always offer help to students that need them. You can come to them whenever you need help and always give advice if you need help. They are strongly dedicated to their subject. The class sizes are mostly like high school classes. they are small but accommodating. we have a wide variety of courses that are offered.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Once I get a degree from this school, I will absolutely feel confident in finding a job. I think that the education I am receiving will get me far in a job. I am not really sure about employers recruiting on campus, but there are career services and job fairs that we have to get to know more about our job and meet some employers.

Campus Housing: The campus housing is not some of the best dorms. Most colleges now have apartment style dorms or suit style dorms. Of course, this is what every student wants to live in. Unfourtantely, Newberry College only has two dorms this style. We have the Oakland Mills apartments that have recently just been assigned to seniors 21 and over and some juniors. The other dorm, Walker dorm, is a suit style dorm that is available to seniors and juniors. So, it is not fair for sophmores and freshman that want this style of dorm because it is not avalible to them. Those two dorms are the newest dorms. The other dorms at Newberry are very old and has lots of problems including air condition problems and bug problems. I think this college needs updated dorms that acquire what students want and are happy to live in. The atmosphere of the dorms are great. On my hall we have a study group that goes into the lobby and studies twice a week together. The cost is average but not average for what we are paying to live in. The housing process is very stressful. As a upcoming senior I was not able to get the mills or walker (which is assigned to seniors and juniors) because by the time it was time for me to sign up for housing, they were all full up. The process is not fair and should be changed to make it easier and fair to everyone.
