IF you live in Morgan/Deerfield, living in a dorm is great. Anywhere else is.... just okay. There are bug problems in Ford. Dana has sinks, but the rooms are small. Morton/Lemley has gone the longest without any renovations. I lived in Dana my freshman year and my roommate moved out early in the year, and I never got a new roommate. So, my experience was probably a lot better than others since I didn't have a roommate. Dana is loud. My hall bathroom was never super dirty, but I've heard horror stories about other places. I like Dana's location, but I like Morgan/Deerfiled better since I am a science major and the science building is right next to Morgan/Deerfield. Dana is very close to the library, which is great!

Professors are intent on giving students the best learning experience. Classes are meant to be engaging and give students hands on experience for a well-rounded education. Berry College provides a variety of jobs on campus to all students who wish to work. Jobs are scheduled to not conflict with any classes. People are very friendly, close-knit environment. Good sense of community. Beautiful campus!
The professors and my advisor have been very helpful. Quiet, sweet, beautiful, Christian environment with very nice people for the most part. Love my roommate and have met some very nice girls. Unfortunately, not all faculty/coaching staff members nor varsity student-athletes represent the school well or conduct themselves in a caring, Christian, responsible, friendly or welcoming manner. Isolated, but very disappointing and adversely impacted my overall experience. This factor has prompted me to seek leaving Berry, because there isn't much else to do there and varsity sports were an important factor in my overall college experience. My family and I were greatly disappointed. My college search was intense and we thought we has found the best of campus environments.
