What Students Are Saying

3.86 Average Rating
Students should be willing to come in ready with the mindset to work extremely hard. A lot of the courses at Berry very rigorous and challenge us a lot, but they provide us with a lot of beneficial information, allowing us to be well prepared in our field of study for when we graduate. If you are having trouble in a class, never hesitate to ask a professor for help. All the professors are more than willing to take the time during their office hours to further explain any concept that may be confusing.

Keep your GPA up, this will increase you student aid opportunities. If you have any problems with money, talk to the President. He will make sure you don't fall in deep with debt and still complete your four years.
Don't fall behind in you classes, this isn't High School where your school days stop on weekends, the prof's expect you to as well versed in you notes as you were on Friday. Your exams will pile up and you will probably have 2-3 on the same day. This is the same where ever you go so you are just going to have to learn to study all the time and never wait till the last minute.. you will get into trouble with that, trust me.
Remember the professors are there to help you. You pay them to teach you, thus there is no stupid question. Ask. They may have been waiting for someone to ask that specific question!
Just a p.s.
This is college not High School. No one is going to wake you up and make you breakfast. Get up yourself and go to class. You are paying the money and no one can have the same notes as you. You will lose your professor's respect if you skip classes.

Tips? Try to immerse yourself in all different kinds of activities. Berry sets the stage for you to experience all kinds of things, so take advantage of it. The more you expose yourself, the more satisfied and certain you will be about the direction in which you want to go during the latter part of your time at Berry and especially after college. Not only so, but exposure to a number of activities will give you many, many opportunities to meet others with similar interests and develop lasting relationships.

For students who known for certain their direction, Berry provides an insurmountable number of opportunities for you to pursue your goals. This includes student teaching, research, outdoor adventures, theatrics, job experience, so on, and so on. Don’t just take my word for it. See for yourself! Visit Berry. Here’s a great place to start: www.berry.edu

Visit the campus and keep talking to your admissions counselor. Rock out your essay and keep in-touch.
Kimberlee from Kennesaw, GA
Definitely visit the school and talk to current students so you know as much as you can about Berry so you know if it's the right school for you. Berry students tend to focus on academics and extracurricular activities that will help them for their future careers.

Be sure you visit campus before you say yes or no. I knew as soon as we drove into the front drive that I would be attending Berry College. However, the small school life is not for everyone. We did however just get a football team this year!
Anna from Owensboro, KY
Make sure to explore the different dorms on campus!!
Mary from Evans, GA
You don't have to know what you want to do with your life your first year, but you will do better at Berry if you know what major you want to pursue before going in. Go tour the campus and talk to current students, that's your best way to learn about the school.
Garrett from Douglasville, GA
Attend Berry College only if you are serious about wanting an education. there is so much that the college has to offer, but it is only beneficial if you are willing to try different programs and clubs and be involved.
