Berea College Welcomes Your Group

We’re excited you’re planning to visit Berea College! Visiting campus is the only way to get a true feel for the fun, friendly, and inclusive spirit of the Berea College community and campus.

What You Can Expect

*The Office of Admissions does not host elementary school or middle school group visits. Contact the Visitors Center at 859-985-3145 to make arrangements for these groups, or if you’re interested in a historic or crafts tour.

  • 9th and 10th graders: a student-led campus tour, a short video, and a college readiness engagement activity
  • 11th and 12th graders: a student-led campus tour, a short video, and a question-and-answer session with an Admissions Counselor
