Making a difference
- At Berea I’ve learned a lot about how to really work hard for something you care about and also balance keeping yourself healthy and happy, and that’s been something really good for me. I like to work hard, I don’t like to do things halfway, but there’s only so much you can do with that.
- I would like to do work for environmental and social change. I’ve always wanted to do that, but I think Berea College has given me a lot more direction, not only in learning about the world’s problems, because that will only get you so far, but also learning solutions and the best ways to work to solve those.
- When people go into college or higher education thinking that they want to make a difference in the world, usually making a difference in the world doesn’t pay a lot. Berea allows you to get that high-quality education and graduate without having the kind of huge debt that really limits your opportunities.
