Celebrate your admittance by seeing Berea College for yourself with three visit options:
1) trueBlue Shadow Visit
Want to really know what it’s like to be a Berea student? Try a Shadow Visit. It is the BEST way to truly immerse yourself at Berea College. You’ll visit our beautiful campus, have the opportunity to stay the night in our Cottage (for free), and shadow a current student host to experience firsthand a day in the life of a Berea College student. On a trueBlue visit, you’ll have the chance to:
- Attend class.
- Eat at the Mountaineer Dining Hall.
- Shadow a work program position.
- Visit a Residence Hall.
Please note that students must be fully vaccinated to participate in a trueBlue Shadow Visit.
2) Family Visit
Family visits occur on campus and include:
- A 20-minute session with an Admissions Representative
- A 90-minute walking tour of campus
- An opportunity to sit down with an Admissions Counselor to discuss your cost estimate and ask any questions.
Families whose students are participating in a Shadow visit may take advantage of a Family Visit while on campus. This visit option is often preferred by visitors who have not been or are unable to be vaccinated.
Family visits are available Monday through Friday and families who need overnight accommodations may inquire about staying in Sturt Cottage.
3) Virtual Visit
For admitted students who are unable to travel to campus, an on-demand virtual, live walking tour with a student ambassador, or a virtual meeting with a current student are all options for you! Reserve your Virtual Visit or call our office at 1-800-326-5948.
*Do not make any travel plans until you receive a call or text confirmation from us. Please note: Berea College is closely following federal, state, and local safety recommendations such as wearing facemasks and social distancing. If there are changes that affect your visit, we will contact you immediately.
If Berea is too far for a day trip and you need a place to stay while you’re in town, our own Sturt Cottage has availablity for guests who need a place to lay their heads.
When making a visit reservation, ask about the opportunity to stay in Sturt Cottage. Located next door to our Admissions Office (The Haaga House), this home away from home provides quaint lodging to our visitors at no charge. The availability of Sturt Cottage is first come, first served.
