Berea College is a place I was very fortunate to study at. I met some incredibly smart people, had great professors, and the academics are just outstanding.
It is a college that stands out because it is unlike the typical college you hear about. It is a work-study school, so students are able to pay for college while in college and it prepares students with labor experience for the real-world workforce.
Overall, Berea College is a great college to be a part of.
When I first enrolled at Berea as a freshman I didn't enjoy it as much. However, Berea has really come through for me especially right now when we need all the help we can get. I've learned so much there, about life, people, diversity, Appalachian culture, and a fair bit about U.S-Japan politics. Berea College taught me that just because you're poor or disadvantaged, that doesn't mean you can't have nice things and be successful.
When I first applied to colleges I was terrified of the stadium classroom, one professor for 100 students trope. That isn't here. Once you're in your major the class size is often ten or less per professor and anxiety drops significantly .The college gives you a job so you don't have to worry about anything here but school work which there will be plenty of!
I have really enjoyed my time at Berea. The small classrooms offer a nice feeling and plenty of time to interact with professors and other students when needed. Berea also provides students with a job to help pay with tuition. It also helps that you do not have to declare your major until your Sophomore year, so if you change your mind it's okay!
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Berea College is 32%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
My advice to find the college right for you would be to find a school that has caring professors. If the professor cares about the success of the student, it drives the student to succeed. The school I attended has amazing professors and several of my former classmates agree that the professor makes all the difference, not only in success, but in enjoying the classes and really learning about the subject. When the professor is excited about teaching, it makes the students excited about learning. The way in which the class material is presented can make the difference in whether a student "survives" college or makes the most of it. Caring professors are also great resources to find successful post-college avenues; they may know someone in the chosen field or be a contact person for an internship. Small schools are usually the way to go if you want this one on one connection. Though there may be a sacrifice of the expensive, state of the art facilities and certain programs that only large schools have, it is worth it to have the support you need right there in the classroom and make college the experience of a lifetime.
I think one of the worst things could be the rules. It is a small, private liberal arts Christian college in Kentucky and a lot of the rules are outdated.
Everyone is incredibly bright, and each of them add something completely different to the classroom, this makes the class incredibly enjoyable.
The thing that I consider the best thing about my school is the class size. All of the classes that I have taken, there has not been over 25 students.
Diverse communtiy that offers many courses for the student who wants to do everything.
My school was the first interracial school in the south. We faught for interracial education even when the state of Kentucky passed a segregation law. Also, we were one of the firsts to educate men and women together. We're well respected throughout the country and our academics rank in the top colleges within the country every year. Also, every student on the campus has to have a work-study job. That means we can take care of ourselves because we are the major labor force for the college. We have fireside crafts that we make, too.
that i would need to save a little more money.
The kind that needs a school willing to take care of them financially. One who has no where else to go and no family to help them out.
Berea College is a work school. Every student has a campus job that allows us to learn self respect and work habits while in school. The school isn't focused on fraternities and sororities. Everyone gets along happily and it's the perfect campus.
Someone who has enough money to pay for college shouldn't attend this school because they would be taking the place of a deserving student that can't afford college that Berea can help. Also someone who feels uncomfortable in a liberal but religious setting should not attend this school.
inexpensive good education, christian based, racially integrated
The most frustrating thing about Berea College is the Financial Aid office. This school is supposed to be free tuition, but they apply all of these fees into your term bill. When trying to get additional financial assistance, it is extremely difficult. The people in the office can be rude at times and like to discuss your difficulties in front of other people.
They are tough but I have learned so much! I am grateful for my professors they want you to succeed and they believe in their students!
There is something for all, but I would say Bonner scholars
That Berea students are highly intelligent and I do agree with that!
