Few Black Students, Few Gay Students, Few Jewish Students. The teachers in my department were not very up to date in their field. I attended graduate school and had to do a lot of catch up of material never covered. No co-ed dorms and you are pretty much treated as a kid. I moved to a large city after this and it was like starting over again getting used to diversity. There is very little alumni outreach other than asking for money and trying to engage is not really appreciated. Very insulated to itself. The people I met after college from the North East really showed me what a quality education can do in terms of thought and diverse thinking. Most students go there because the tuition is cheap but the life experience is backwards. If you can afford a college with a more liberal administration go there. All the presidents have been white heterosexual married men so that tells you everything. If you are a white heterosexual male this place thinks like that. Warren Wilson would be a much better choice and if I had been better informed I would have sought a more liberal college experience for undergraduate studies.

Be sure to research the average starting salary from this school compared to the nation average. You get what you pay for. Additionally, students that meet the financial eligibility requirements for this college will typically be eligible for similar offers from state universities, especially in the student's home state...Do not be fooled by the PR department's doublespeak; you will regret attending this school.

The class sizes are all small so it's easy to get individual attention from professors, regardless of department. The small size also works against Berea though. There isn't as much diversity within majors or as much access to resources as with larger state-schools. The professors can work with you though to set up independent studies in areas that interest you (I've done two during my time here).
The flip side is that Berea's residential life is awful. Many of the dorms are in poor condition and you can't live off campus until your senior year and even then it's not guaranteed. The town of Berea is also very boring. It's a dry town so there is no alcohol and unless you are an avid hiker/backpacker there isn't much else to do.

Berea is a lot of work. If you can handle the workload (schoolwork AND labor) here, you will be surprised and gratified for what you have achieved. Also, come open-minded. Albeit the relatively conservative geographic location (the bible-belt, as per some people would call it), Berea college was founded as a pioneer for social equity. So, everything is possible here.
