Am learning a lot
The teachers here care a lot about your education. Because of the small learning environment, the teachers can focus on you as a individual student. Unlike big universities where you are being taught by a teachers aid, you have the professor in the room. They make themselves available to the students.
Am enjoying being here
This is in a small town. The closest movies, mall, and other attractions are in Columbia. This can be helpful because all you have to focus on is school work but it can get boring.
Bang for the buck
This tution is high for this school but the money is being used very well to help the students. There is free laundry and in movie rooms. Also free paper to use for printing and entertainment. The campus put on events for the students such as bowling nights or concerts for the students. Also the classrooms are up to date in technology.
Tips for prospective students
Don't let the small town discourage you, it is fun while college is in session. Also don't be discourage because it is a small school. Because it is a small school, people are more helpful and get to know you better. Newberry offers the same as big universities such as greek life and NCAA sports.
Great for these types of students
Newberry is good for students who want a good connection to not only the school but the community. Newberry reaches out and helps the community.

I love this college, it is in a small, quiet, quaint town. The school offers beautiful historic building and amazing scenery. The students here are great and are there to learn, they do not disrupt class like you have at most colleges.
Tips for prospective students
Tour the campus, you will fall in love. Be nice and say Hello, everyone is great here.
Academic Rigor
Teachers expect a lot from you, challenge you daily, but that is what makes you a better person in the end.
Dorm Life
dont live on campus
Food and Dining
Dining hall is nice with plenty of seating, food is great.
What to do for fun
Take a stroll through historic downtown newberry, hit up the many different restuarants around, or play tennis or swim in the campus pool.
Bang for the buck
College isnt the cheapest around, but the education you get makes it worth it. I currently work at a business where I use my college knowledge already and see how much it already helps me.

Newberry College is a wonderful undergraduate institution that prides itself on its personalized learning experiences. The professors are actively engaged with the students and work to not only teach but to instill a love of learning inside each individual. The environment is warm, welcoming, and each year Newberry College continues to offer a home to the students attending.
Tips for prospective students
As cliche as it may sound, get involved! Your first year is an adventure. Dive into the opportunities on campus available you never know what you might end up loving. Make your first year memorable!
Academic Rigor
Newberry College size contributes much to the academic rigor of the school. With small class sizes of sometimes only ten students, there is no room for excuses. Professors hold students to high expectations and teach so that students are challenged and prepared to succeed in the work force.
Dorm Life
Although Newberry has small dorm rooms, because of some of the historical buildings, the dorm life experience can not be compared. The Residence Life Coordinatiors are incredible and the growth and learning that occurs in the dorms makes it often a second classroom.
Food and Dining
At Newberry food is always a priority. With the numerous options and the servers genuine southern hospitality students rarely leave a meal unsatisfied.
What to do for fun
Newberry College, located in a small town, sponsors events so frequently that there is hardly a moment to be bored. From athletic games, to theater performances, to Greek life events students are always busy.
Bang for the buck
The Newberry College experience is worth every penny spent.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Rumor has it that students who walk under the bell tower in the center of campus will not graduate in four years...Let's see how many people can prove this wrong!
Great for these types of students
Newberry is great for students that want to be involved on campus and have a personalized learning experience.
Clubs and Activities
There is a variety of clubs and activities to chose from at Newberry and there is always opportunities to get involved.
Greek Life
Greek Life is incredible at Newberry College. All members are actively involved on campus and they are constantly striving to become men and women of character and conduct.
Campus Safety
Safety on campus is wonderful! They are always working hard and make you feel at ease. Everyone is friendly and willing to help at any hour.

Newberry is over all the best decision that i have ever made. It has changed my life for the better and continues to do so. All of the people in Newberry are very kind and caring people that are easy to love.
Tips for prospective students
Be yourself and don't fall into friend groups that will not benefit you. Have character in every aspect of your life and you will succeed at newberry. Talk to your professors like they are your friends and they will become your best friends.
Academic Rigor
The academics at Newberry are very prestigious but are flawed in some minor ways. The professors will go out of their way for a student as long as respect is maintained. Newberry is a Hell yourself environment.
Dorm Life
Dorm life is absolutely amazing. I have met some of the best people i have ever seen in my life in my dorm. You will meet your best friends in a dorm at Newberry College
Food and Dining
The food could improve. Over the last year the food has improved and has maintained its improvements so far. Be cautious of the food.
What to do for fun
In Newberry there is always something fun to do. Most of the time it is just hanging out in the dorms. The FCA always has an event going on also.
Bang for the buck
Newberry is a very expensive college but in my eyes it is so worth what you are paying. I have been at Newberry for one year and i have had the best experiences of my life. The bang is so much more than worth the buck.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
There is a bell tower, walk under monument in located in the middle of campus. If you walk under it before you graduate then you will not graduate. Not to mention the majority of the school's buildings were used in the civil war.
Great for these types of students
Newberry is an athlete school. There is also a very good band. If you do not have a profession in sports or and art then it is probably not for you.
Clubs and Activities
Greek live is amazing and there is a very nice SGA at Newberry College. Newberry has many clubs and religious groups to be joined. There are so many that one cannot attend all of the events held in a week that is pu on for the students.
Greek Life
We have three sororities and three fraternities at Newberry College. I can personally say that Greek life is one of the best things that a student can do through the college. My fraternity has helped me through so much and continues to do so(Theta Chi).
Campus Safety
The security guards are always on duty. They are all nice and friendly. They patrol the entire campus every hour all day and night.

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.
Tips for prospective students
Newberry College is a private, religion-affiliated school, but it welcomes all denominations. Come here ready to learn to the fullest. Be involved around campus because you will meet many wonderful people around campus.
Academic Rigor
The one-to-one attention that professors give their students is unbelievable because our college has the best academics. The ratio of students to professor is amazing because you are always heard and given the time you need in and out of class.
Dorm Life
It all depends on where you live on campus, but our college has wonderful Resident Advisers and staff that make your stay in the 'dorms' as comfortable as possible.
Food and Dining
The new cafeteria dining area has been recently renovated and creates a great area to dine and spend some quality time with friends. Although the food is cafeteria food, it speaks for itself (in a good way).
What to do for fun
There are many things around campus that are here for students to get involved and have fun on days that need a lift. The student organizations create many events throughout the year that bring creative things to the campus so that all students can enjoy. These things are usually free to students of Newberry College.
Bang for the buck
Because Newberry College is a private college, there is more to pay for tuition, etc. However, it is worth it!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Every year the graduating class donates an item to the campus that is remembered for all years to come!
Clubs and Activities
There are so many opportunities for the students. The only thing is that they need to get involved!
Greek Life
There are many different Greeks on campus. A variety for all types of persons!
Campus Safety
There is an outstanding security system around campus, and we all feel extremely safe every day.

Am learning a lot
Newberry College's learning experience is very unique. The small class sizes make it easy to have a one on one relationship with your professor. The instructors are always more than willing to spend the extra time and energy to make sure that the class or individual understands the concept. At Newberry you are not another number, but a student to a professor that wants to see you succeed. With this small learning environment there are many opportunities for students to explore outside of classroom as well.
Am enjoying being here
The college community is very exciting at Newberry. We have a variety of organizations and a student body that enjoys being involved. There is always some event to take part in and the college's fine art and lecture program helps to find speakers that are not just educational but fun. It is a very easy school to get involved, make friends and I have enjoyed every minute of my first year here.
Bang for the buck
With being a small private institution, Newberry is not the most inexpensive school in South Carolina, but it is well worth paying the extra money. The College is very good about taking the extra money and really spending it on the student body. From the school hosted student activities, to the free printing and laundry on campus, it is obvious after only a few weeks on campus that the college's main priority is the students!
Tips for prospective students
I would recommend that students sit in on classes at their prospective schools. When attending college, the majority of time will be spent in the classroom so it is important to see if the learning environment will help you succeed
Great for these types of students
Newberry is great for students that like the small town feel but still like to have plenty to do while at school. There is a perfect balance of busy and bored. It is also good for students who thrive in smaller classes and desire to be a student that stands out in the crowd.

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.
Tips for prospective students
I honestly have no answer to this because school is out for the summer and i have no means to find the answer.
Academic Rigor
While mainly famous for their amazing chemistry department, Newberry College also has a growing music program that really challenges the majority of its students.
Dorm Life
While there have been accounts of mold found in some of the dorms, janitors clean them daily. Also, students don't often make messes because the people found responsible for messing up a hall with trash (littering, etc.) will be fined, if no one is found solely responsible then the whole floor is sued which often keeps students in check.
Food and Dining
All the food is made daily and cooked by chefs who appear to be highly qualified. There is always various dishes and daily they make different foods from the previous day which to me shows their vast culinary knowledge. My only year there was last year and there were no complaints at all.
What to do for fun
When not hanging out with my friends, i train constantly because i am a college wrestler, or practice my instruments because I am a musician and studying Music Education.
Bang for the buck
It is a very expensive school, that for a full-time student would cost anywhere from $25,000-$34,000 per year, making it one of the most expensive schools in South Carolina and very unaffordable without plenty of scholarship money.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
There aren't any that come to mind, but to be entirely honest, I haven't looked around much.
Clubs and Activities
Tennis, Wrestling, Soccer, Volleyball, Golf, Football, Baseball, Softball, Lacrosse, Band, Theatre, Chorus, Fraternities, and Sororities
Greek Life
Many greeks on campus including myself, this past year I pledged Tau Kappa Epsilon.
Campus Safety
Very little trouble happens in newberry because it is a small town and police have know where to hide and always seem to be around.
