    Let's do some math. Let's assume bang is a variable that can go from 0 to 1, 1 being the most bang, 0 being the least. Let's also assume buck is 0 What is bang/buck? hint: it's infinity.. or maybe undefined value if you really want to argue. Anyways, you won't find a better bargain in the south, and if you're willing to put up with everything there (which is truly a trivial issue, except the roommate issues), you will find supportive teachers, a beautiful setting and all the schoolwork you can stare blankly at.

    It is said that Berea College is the 'best education money can't buy.' However, be aware that even if your EFC is zero, your term bill will increase as you continue your time at the college. While you do not pay tuition, the cost of living and meals are not always covered and some people who have higher EFCs may pay up to a few thousand per year. Also, Berea College offers very affordable study abroad plans. My planned trip will cost me about $2,000 out of pocket after grants and scholarships (which I have worked to save by being diligent with my labor program earnings).

    The tuition is free, but you have to pay for books, food, logging, all the extra things really. The college gives you a job to help pay for those things, and they give you money so that you can buy toothpaste or new clothes. All in all, Berea College is a money saver. To be able to get in, though, parents have to make under a certain amount.

    Imagine being accepted to a school that is extremely selective, gives every student a full-tuition scholarship plus more financial assistance, receiving a free, brand new laptop, and making the most of an education that many other colleges and universities wished they could live up to. And on top of that, being the #1 school in the US with the lowest student debt amongst its graduates. Welcome to Berea College!

    some say Berea is free. No...no it is not. You may not pay much money compared to other colleges, but it is taxing in many other ways.
