    If you are getting a scholarship from a non-Berea institution, you will not see a cent of it if you go to Berea. Your Berea semesterly tuition will likely still be more affordable than it would have been at another college (unless of course you are getting a full scholarship).

    This all being in retrospect, I'd recommend not partaking in the school's dining program. It is not extremely varied, and I wouldn't imagine it's extremely healthy, either. It'd be better to just opt out and visit the local stores (see: Wal*Mart, and only Wal*Mart) for your nutritional needs. You'll also save a good bit of money that way. It's also not advisable to buy anything you don't absolutely have to from the student book store. I'll leave this short and sweet by letting you know I spent $12 on a bottle of shampoo. No, seriously. Most importantly, though, I'd advise fighting for an air conditioned dorm, for obvious reasons. I'm not sure about the female situation, but male freshmen are likely to be put in Dana Hall, which is notorious for its incredibly hot rooms - and lack of heating. All underclass dorms also stink of something vile and sweaty, but that's unavoidable and another story altogether.

    The college super-scores you ACT scores, so keeping taking it! Write your optional essay even though it is optional. Visit the campus and find out if the majors offered are right for you while considering the possible majors you may want to explore. Take the time while you visit to sit in a class and see how you like it!

    Don't be shy! If you want to make new friends, Berea College is the best place in the world to do this. Everyone is so accepting and it definitely changes your perception of your own life before entering the school. Just relax. You're a Mountaineer now and Mountaineers don't take anything for granted.
