Most Helpful Review for Berea College

The professors all make sure that you are keeping up, but at the same time, you are expected to keep up to the rigorous pace they set. We currently operate on a 4-1-4 calendar year. That means that fall semester is 4 months, we have a January Short Term and the spring semester is 4 months. This allows us to have a break because during short term, students are only allowed to take one class.

    There are simply no words to describe my experience at Berea College. This place changed my life! Aside from its stellar academics, outstanding work-study program, and culture of service and stewardship, this institution was HOME during my four-year experience as a college student.

    Berea College stands out from most other colleges in that it: has class sizes of 30 at most, is in a dry county, has a required labor program (making possible its nearly free education), and has comparatively high quality -but limited- science programs for a liberals arts college. Students power everything at Berea- from the cafeteria to the janitorial care of dorms to the secretaries in administrator offices. Nearly all students live on campus as it is the most affordable option, and the same can be said for cafeteria dining.

    Berea College is a great institution resting in the mountains of Kentucky. While an excellent financial opportunity, it's also advised to be aware of the responsibilities you would be expected to uphold, as you will have to understand the balance between work, play and school. Expect the classrooms to be similar to high school, your privacy to be stripped and to generally be your own source of excitement.

    Berea College is a very diverse, interesting, and intensely educational school. It has a beautiful campus, a great community of classmates and professors, and a fantastic array of classes. While the classes are challenging and you may sometimes feel as if there are not enough hours in the day, the experience and education you will gain here is completely worth it.

    Berea College is small and interactive. Students and faculty really do care. A work college is good for your resume.

    A small college with the opportunity for more one on one with professors. Has some diversities, in that they have students from all over the world there. Berea College is very much an educational school, there are not much crazy wild parties on campus.

    Berea is that place full of so much academic rigor and it can be a little much. It is also that sigh of relief from high school. You've come to a place where people want to know your name and your story, and that just makes it so special.

    Berea is a Liberal Arts school that offers free tuition. Berea is also a work study college. So, it is a Harvard for low income families and YOU WILL BUST YOUR BUTT learning and working.
