I assume they are very strict. I didn't get into trouble, so I don't know how strict they are.

Berea College is one of 7 work colleges in the United States, and our program is special. Every student, when accepted their first year, is assigned a job on campus. These jobs include working at dining services, the college farm, the college bookstore, as a TA, in the library, in the financial aid office, at facilities management, and many other jobs. You are expected to work at least 10 hours a week, and you get a part of your earnings, while the rest goes into funding your tuition. Every spring you have to find a job for the next year, and you have the chance to go up a pay grade. It is this program that is partly responsible for allowing Berea College to provide a tuition free education to all of its students.

Every Student is issued a laptop computer their freshman year, and they are expected to keep it in good condition. Our tech center will fix any problems that occur with your computer, and should they need to keep it for a longer period of time, you will be issued a loaner computer. Because everyone has access to a laptop, we do not a an abundance of desk top computers for student use. Of course, you are allowed to have your personal computers as well, but the tech center will only be minimally helpful if you run into problems.

Berea College is a charming small college town. It feels welcoming, and there are cute small stores the students can go in and look or hang out in. The college gives an overall relaxed feeling.

There are not many parking spots available as of now. So, there is competition for parking spaces, and not every student are allowed to bring their cars. The parking area for students is also far away, so it is a small walk.

Though the tuition is guaranteed to be payed for all students who get accepted, students still have to pay for logging, books, food, and any other extra supplies. Berea does offer scholarships as well, there are somewhat hard to find.

The academic is the best thing of this college. The professors are really hard, you have to learn a lot to pass the class, and it is very hard to get a good GPA, unless you study like a horse.

The freshmen dorms for guys are dirty, for girls is ok. But for both the space is very limited the worst thing of all is the visitation law. The guys can't stay over night in the girls dorm and there is am extremely small chance for you to have a single room.

There are soccer games, basketball games on campus, and cross country too, the diversity of sports are poor, most of the students are just playing them for fun, few is really going to make a career out of it.

There are few restaurants off campus, those within the walking distance are all selling hamburgers and juice and coffee, there is no Chinese restaurants around and sandwiches in the restaurants don't taste good.

Off campus housing is ok. However, it is really tiring for students to walk to campus if he or she doesn't have a bike or a car.
College Sophomore 2013-06-26T17:02:33Z
There are only two really known place to go and eat within the campus. Both are good to eat at, but there isn't much variety.

There are a number of sports in Berea College, except we do not have football. The students are pretty supporting of one another, and have a fun time. The college also has a nice gym that is easily accessible.
College Sophomore 2013-06-26T16:54:35Z
The college provides laptops for every student that gets accepted. Plue, the library has some computers that are easily accessible. The printers, however, are not the most reliable, but you can always trust the library's printers.

Health & Safety:
Berea's Campus Security is great. You see them around all the time and they offer some great services, like picking you up and dropping you off at your dorm if it's late at night. However, there isn't much they can do about the theft problem on campus. Don't leave valuables out and laying around or unlocked. Chances are you won't see them again!
College Junior 2013-06-24T15:19:05Z
Transportation at Berea is minimal. Unless you have a car or a friend with a car, there aren't many opportunities to get off campus that aren't somehow school related.

The basics for a small private liberal arts college!

You have to be married, have children or some sort of extreme condition to live off campus

Taxis are five dollars for anywhere in the city to anywhere else in the city. Campus shuttles run every week day with easy sign up. No vehicles allowed for students, however.

There is effectively no night life at Berea College. On campus, there are about four parties a year.
College Junior 2013-04-27T18:20:38Z
We have great facilities. Sometimes I wish that we had another gym for when they have to close it for events.
College Junior 2013-04-27T18:19:06Z
We are one of the best Colleges in the South! The professors are very flexible with your work and other academics
