    I love the Berry Bubble! The campus is always lively. It is the largest (and most beautiful) campus in the world--27,000 acres of land to explore, hike, bike, photograph, and thrive in. The community is wonderful and there are always campus events! The academics are challenging and very well rounded. With small class sizes and a small campus, you really gain connections with professors and other students. The work experience is the school's best draw. Every student is guaranteed a job--from magazine editor to costume shop employee, media rep, office worker, or even dairy farmer!

    The campus is gorgeous, the faculty and staff are kind and supportive, and the overall atmosphere is positive and accepting! Depending on the area of study (and one's personal academic strengths), the courses are very challenging. Diversity is unfortunately lacking, due in part to the cost of tuition (although scholarships are available) and the location in the North GA mountains.
    I love it there! the only reason I gave it four instead of 5 is because they hype up the weekends saying they always have something to do which is false, its pretty quiet on weekends and not much to do. But everyone there is very friendly, they have small classrooms which allow students to connect with teachers, and its a beautiful campus
