    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).
