What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
Newberry College is the best choice for students who are looking for a school with a good sense of community, good academics, and great opportunities all around. This school has everything from a wonderful student body and staff to a welcoming place for the outside community as well. I can truly say it has been a wonderful experience.

It is basically a giant family in which I love everyone there. I've learned a lot because they retaught me how to study and teachers are more available since it's a small college and there aren't 400 people classes. I have had a great college experience thus far because i am a student who learns best in small places and Newberry College is the perfect place for that.
