I transferred to Newberry College during the fall of 2017 and now this is my second year being there and I'm currently a junior. Newberry College is a family oriented campus, yes the campus is small but you get that one on one interaction a student needs with his or her professor. The best part of it is as a student you are not just a number!

My overall experience with Newberry College has been nothing less then a great one. I love the school so much, because of its diversity and the simple fact that there is a great amount of safety on the campus. I have met new friends here that will last a lifetime. One of the things i like most, is that the school holds required activities so that students do interact with each other and do participate in school events. The professors are known on a one to one basis, so it is really easy to connect with them and ask questions about lessons or upcoming assignments and things of that nature.
Newberry has a deserve scene of students, and has different things for students to do around campus. Sports is basically the only thing keeping this college afloat. Dorms are nasty and not the best. Very hard to be approved to live off campus. Professors aren't the best, but once you find a good professor they will always check up on you. Lots of money is given to students because it is a private college.
