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.

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berry college seems to be extremely safe. Everyone around seems very well educated, positive and quite helpful. Students had nothing but praise for their professors and their accessibility. Students also bragged that their professors actually cared whether they show up for class and make good grades or not.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berry College is a small, but not trivial, private school that has so much to offer. They offer lots of opportunities for students academically, socially, and personally. The classrooms are small and comfortable, making to easier to get to know your professor and ask questions or not get lost during class discussion. They have several majors to choose from and hundreds of classes pertaining to individual majors and interests. Berry is great about offering student activities during the year to help keep students morals up and not drowning in work. It's a great way to connect with people, and with it being a smaller school, keeps it easy to stay connected. Berry also offers clubs, counseling, tutoring, and academic advisors to help students throughout their college career. You'll not only gain the calming and peaceful benefits from being on one of the most beautiful and the largest campus (arguably) in the world but also being in such a close community where everyone feels welcome and safe.
