I would choose this school again because it's small which means the professors know you by name and not just a number. It gives you the opportunity to get to know your professor and get that one on one help if needed.

Yes I understand that Newberry College is a small school however, is uniquely personalized for each student that decides to attend Newberry. With the smaller classes the professors make sure that each student is not only getting the material but comprehending the material. They are also very available most of the time if you have other questions out side of the classroom. Being an athlete at Newberry will not stop you towards earning your degree. Schedules are planed around games, practices and competitions; therefore your professors and on board with your schedule.

Newberry is a great college, but it can be extremely boring at times. It is a school in a old, abandoned town with nothing to do. Pretty hard to make new friends there too if you are not an athlete or in a sorority.
