Once you are here at the school it

Apr 17 2010Undecided
Once you are here at the school it is very hard to get away without some sort of outside help. Some of the majors are more or less a joke and only exist as a means to attract more "poor" students who can bring in scholarships. The bottom line is the school's main focus tends to be how many scholarship dollars they can find.

students are numbers

Oct 10 2009Art & Design Department
students are numbers. berea is a cash cow for the bureacrats. teachers and students are squeezed while bureacrats rake in the bucks. quality of education was disappointing. they give a lot of busy work. they force you to juggle a lot of stuff....work, convos, classes,none of which is terribly stimulating. the department i was in was very disappointing. lack of professionalism. lack of high standards for art majors. very non supportive. for a college department it felt more like high school. a waste of time and money.

Just because they offer scholarships doesn't mean that

Nov 10 2010Chemistry
Just because they offer scholarships doesn't mean that it is best for you. Save yourself, this is a liberal arts school so you will not specialize in your field. You'll have to take required courses; which are a waste of time if you're not interested in them.

The science professors are full of themselves (not all of them but definitely some key people) and they're full of favoritism. Instead of giving you advice or help, they'll just look down on you when you don't understand the material. On top of that, they accept students who already had experience taking the science course so naturally it is easier for some people to get the material but what about the ones who are just new going to college? If I had to make the choice again, I would have not gone. I would pay another college that will teach me my field and not waste 4 years.
