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.

The faculty lie, cheat and do not care who they hurt. I have had no help when faced with major issues and they have ABSOLUTELY no respect for single parents, or parents of any kind for that matter. Your child gets ill? Too bad, fail your classes or go knock on random neighbors' doors to see if someone will watch them. They would rather ignore you and pretend your arguments are invalid to even lift a finger to help you. My classmates have treated me either neutral or like I'm a complete moron. I have never felt more ridiculed anywhere in my life. Sadly, because Berea requires courses no one else requires, I can't leave. I had planned on going to grad school, but making THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE and coming here has squashed that dream. Save yourself the heartache - take out loans and go elsewhere!!!! You will be LUCKY to get a C in ANY class in the nursing major, and good luck getting any help. It's not because I lack intelligence - PLEASE, I get straight As in every other class - it's that the professors barely make an effort with you.
