    I love the small class sizes and the interactions you get to make with the faculty and staff. Professors go out of there way to make sure you get all the help you need. Academics in all departments are rigorous, but doable if you're willing to put in the work. Events on campus are really fun, if you actually go to them. Concerts are always pretty good bands, and some events are amazing, like turning the entire student activities building into a casino, or when we have an actual carnival on campus. Clubs are also super fun, and so are the department events, like recreation sorts, hikes, etc. Every weekend there's plenty to do. Sports teams are good and fun to watch. Basketball, softball, football, and volleyball are the best and it's fun to watch them play, and all the sports events are hype. Dorms are good as well. Although some are small, the community is amazing. You meet so many people through the residence halls, and you'll always find great friends, study partners, etc.

    Berry College has an amazing student to professor ratio. The professors are always available to meet outside of class. Unlike large state schools, Berry has a tight knit community. Everyone rallies together when there's a problem or student in need. There are a multitude of D3 sports, intramural sports, clubs, and on campus activities. Berry College is an amazing place to graduate from!
    Small class sizes and helpful professors mean you're never alone on your academic journey! The campus is also absolutely beautiful, perfect for anyone who loves nature or hiking.
