What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berry is definitely the place for me. I have never felt more at home at a college. The academics here are amazing. Professors are always available to meet, during office hours, or even during other times. I've had professors schedule extra office hours late night so students could get a chance to see them if they didn't have time during the say. Academics are rigorous, but doable if you're willing to put in the work. Most students graduate with a job or go to grad school within six months, which is why I chose Berry. Tons of majors (I'm a double major and double minor) and minors to choose from, students have a good choice. Small classes are also great. After interning at a D1 school this past summer, I've never been more grateful to be at a D3 where professors want to know us, and don't just have their post-doc students teach for them. There are tons of awesome events always on campus. We have one night where our Student Activities Center is turned into a casino, another where we have an actual carnival on campus, etc. KCAB and the other clubs host a lot of fun events on campus like those, and also movie nights, game nights, spa treatments, and so much more. They also do off campus events like bowling and skate nights too. Plus, recreation does a lot of fun hikes and other activities on and off campus, so that's super fun. Plus, tons of clubs and organizations on campus host events during the week and the weekend, so there is always something to do. No greek life, but with these activities, no one really wants it anyways . Food is okay. Dhall is way better now than when I got here, so I would say it's actually pretty decent now. My only complaint would be the lack of options, cause other than Dhall, it's only Chick-Fil-A, Subway, and Miso (sushi place). However, there are tons of great restaurants in Rome that Berry students get discounts at. Berry is also doing more to improve safety, so I feel a lot better about that now then I used to. The gatehouse makes sure unauthorized visitors aren't on campus, and everyone on campus valuers safety a lot in my opinion. Pol;ice are always patrolling to make sure everything is okay. Although religion is big at the school, it's okay to not be a part of it. Religion is not shoved down anyone's throat, and although you may hear about students hosting bible studies or an event at the College chapel, you're free to participate or not. I love the Chaplain on campus though, and there are tons of great religious groups on campus, if you're interested. Sports are super good. Football, softball, volleyball, and basketball are the best, although all of the teams are pretty good. Sports games are always super fun, and the pack the house events are always a great time to go hang out with friends and enjoy the game. Dorms are a little old, and some are kinda small, but that's mostly for freshmen, as they get a lot nicer as you move up. However, the residence halls are an awesome place to form communities, and you meet a lot of great friends and study partners on your hall. The dorms are a great place to just foster and form new friendships. Overall, Berry is an amazing place to study if you want small classes, a chance to actually know your professor (and conduct research with them), and find a small student body that truly cares about learning, but also about just having a good time at college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

After visiting Berry college multiple times as well as other colleges I have made this my dream college. I loved the campus tours and how helpful they were of the questions I asked. The day I walked onto the college campus I knew it was for me. The deer, the old style housing, the gorgeous views and how welcoming the staff and students were . I hope to attend Berry after I graduate high school in spring of 2022. I cant wait for the new experiences and learning at Berry.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berry College is a very special place to me. When I first walked on campus, I immediately fell in love with the scenery and soon the people. The professors are great and will be willing to help you learn outside of classroom time. I love the small classes and how everyone is really interested in what they are studying at Berry College. The freshman orientation was very well done, and the leaders were very friendly and helpful. Berry College has helped me find meaning in my studies and has showed me how to apply what I study to the real world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berry is an extremely overpriced college that tries to teach at an ivy league level but without the prestige attached. Professors are never there for office hours, even after scheduling appointments, they are often cancelled. The academic “success “ center is full of students who do not want to work real jobs and instead try to tutor students when they are hardly knowledgeable enough to be teaching or explaining class content. No diversity at Berry at all. If you’re rich, white and Christian you’ll fit right in, otherwise do not talk about your religious beliefs or you could lose shadowing and internship opportunities from your professors. The attendance policy for class is also so rigorous that missing 3 classes could make you automatically fail a course. I wish I had never went to Berry, it was a waste of one year and especially a waste of $50,000.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berry is situated in a teeny tiny town in the Northwest corner of Georgia. So if you want actual city or nightlife you will have to go to Atlanta or Chattanooga. But hey this is the prettiest campus I have ever seen, and I am still amazed seeing deer everyday. Getting past some inconveniences I have truly found a home at Berry. Classes are so tailored to students and their education department is superb. Even as a freshman I feel like I am making progress towards my degree and future career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berry is a repressive, closed-minded, self-satisfied bastion of mediocrity and knee-jerk conservatism that pretends to be "Christian" but is hostile to anyone who does not conform to their bland, antiquated concept of the universe. The minuscule percentage of minorities is shameful (and telling), and if you vary from conservative norms, you are NOT WELCOME (particularly if you are gay--the administration actually forbid the forming of a gay student group because it made them uncomfortable). Keep in mind that it is VERY EXPENSIVE, but there are hardly any majors offered--incongruously, they call themselves a "liberal arts college" on their website, yet they disdain anything "liberal" and do not value the "arts" at all. They Their disregard for art, the humanities and anything cultural is simply pathetic. The facilities for art majors are laughable. Berry is a tiny undergraduate college, NOT a university, and students are not exposed to the grownup world of academics engaged in relevant research--it is an overgrown high school, essentially, and students are intentionally sheltered and rarely encounter the outside world. Food service (Aramark) is mediocre, pedestrian and on the level of fast food--the majority of female students are seriously overweight. The only notable thing about Berry in the past decade were the eagles that nested there, which has nothing to do with higher learning. Do you ever hear anything else about Berry? Do you ever hear about major research or academic achievement emerging from Berry? If you do not support Donald Trump, you should steer clear. Considering how expensive it is, it is NOT WORTH THE INVESTMENT - particularly if you are an in-state Georgian and have been accepted to a real university, such as UGA.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly love Berry College. From the classes, to the work program, to the overall atmosphere, it is honestly the best place for me to be. I can not imagine being at any other school, and I highly encourage every student looking for this specific type of education to strongly consider Berry.
