We toured the weaving studio which was very interesting. We were able to speak to some of the students who were happy to answer our questions.

The grounds of the college make for a nice evening stroll, with lots to look at, spaces to admire and a lot of history to absorb. Landscaped beautifully with friendly cats sauntering around on the well-lit campus.

We went for a college tour for my daughter. We were very impressed. The school is rich in history. The views are great at any angle of the school. My daughter hopes to become a student soon.

typical college to go wonder around at, I was there for a lecture, but you can just walk around it you want, or you could take a class there..

Berea college has a noble mission, and to be honest it is difficult to put into words. The faculty are committed to offering a high education, with a very low cost. They invite people from all over the world to take part in the opportunities they offer, and i am blessed to be apart of their mission.

Berea College is an absolute blessing to students, especially internationals, with high potentials but financial constraints. It accepts 30-35 international students each academic year, and offers each of them full tuition and board scholarship which includes all courses, room, meal plans, extra curricular activities, free laptop and even $200 shopping allowance (only for the first Winter vacation). The faculty and... More

The college itself is lovely throughout all seasons of the year. As a student at Berea I have seen it at its best and at its worst..but it is always beautiful. The scenery around campus provides a perfect place to enjoy a stroll viewing the buildings and dormitories. Come here to see a beautiful campus!

The college campus is a really nice place to walk around. There are great little artisan centers, a visitors center, a campus farm store, and interesting things to see.
