        My experience at Berea was life changing! The professors care about the students and there is a real sense of community felt throughout the campus. The diverse student population and small student to teacher ratio prepares you for excellence in the "real world."

        Berea is a small college and you really get to know your professors. You get a world class education for zero tuition, and you meet people from many different cultures. The campus is compact and beautiful. You can walk or bike to wherever you need to be - no car needed. The work study program is required of all students and instills a feeling for the dignity of labor. If you are a serious student with limited financial means and want a great liberal arts education, Berea is for you.
