Berea College Reviews
There has been a lot of opportunities come to me just from being college. However, one of the best things about Berea is that students have the option to apply to study abroad. Also, since I am in the music department (music minor), I get to see amazing professionals perform in front of my very eyes! I am so blessed by this and encouraged by these talented people every day to improve at the piano and singing. I suppose one thing that I would like to see change here at Berea is everyone taking advantage of what they have. Berea College has a lot to offer, and it would do my heart well if people could really understand how blessed they are. Other than that, I have enjoyed being a student here and being a part of this community very much.
Berea College was rank as one most leading private liberal arts college in the United States, fact that I personally love. This college also support students with financial problems and give them the opportunity to continue their education. There are numerous clubs and organizations to join, students of Berea College are really involve with the institution. The teacher have a good relationships with students. They also have a beautiful Campus, small but spectacular.
At Berea, you engage in the labor program and have the opportunity to gain 4 years of work experience- a unique model of gaining academic and field experience. Berea's community is a place where you can celebrate all aspects of diversity and engage in growth-promoting social justice dialogues. Great for students who are willing to work hard for a meaningful undergraduate college experience. Very convenient for international students who are looking for a tight-knit community to live and learn in. In brief Berea not only extremely affordable, but also full of opportunities to grow, serve and receive life-changing mentorship and training.
