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!

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.

I love the atmosphere at my school! Even though it is small it's scenery is definitely a plus, and the teachers and students are very helpful when it comes to needing extra help or if you have a question or if you even just need someone to talk to. I love that the teachers are willing to help with work after hours and they will stay and help until you understand everything! My school is great; while it is small it makes up for that with its personality. The school always has something new going on and it is a very enjoyable environment!
