Campus Visit & Virtual Experiences

A campus visit is worth a thousand brochures.

The campus visit experience is often the highest-rated decision-making factor for college-going students when choosing where they want to enroll. Even though the global pandemic has altered the campus visit experience at colleges nationwide, we are pleased to offer both on-campus and virtual visit experiences. Please note all visits occur in the Eastern Time Zone and we look forward to you joining us soon.

Masks are currently optional for guests on-campus and encouraged in larger group settings. We ask that you do not attend your upcoming visit or event at Berea College if you or anyone in your party is not feeling well or showing any COVID-19 symptoms, regardless of vaccination status or a negative test. We will do everything we can to reschedule your on-campus visit, provide you with a virtual visit, or share event highlights with you if you must cancel attending an Admissions Office visit or event. Please see our COVID-19 FAQ’s and Guidelines before reserving an on-campus visit. 

*Campus Visits through the Admissions Office are only for prospective students and their families. If you are not a prospective student, please visit the College’s Visitor Center & Shoppe page or our city’s page to learn how you can safely visit our beautiful region during this time.

On-Campus Tours

On-campus tours are currently available for seniors and juniors and students who are looking to transfer from another college or university On-campus visits include a 20-minute session with a representative from Admissions followed by a 90-minute walking tour of campus.

Reserve your On-Campus Tour or call our office at 1-800-326-5948. 

Virtual Tours

Two different types of virtual tours are available for domestic high school students who are unable to come to campus for a visit. Virtual visits include either a live-streamed walking tour of campus with a couple of our current student ambassadors or a pre-recorded information session with an admissions associate and a pre-recorded on-campus walking tour with a student ambassador. Livestreamed tours allow you to see the campus in real-time and ask questions along the way. These must be pre-scheduled and times are limited. Pre-recorded information sessions and tours allow you to view campus on your own time. Request your Virtual Tour or call our office at 1-800-326-5948.

Group Visits

Group Visits are for groups of high school students sponsored by a teacher or school administrator. Group Visits are offered on a first-come, first-served basis and availability is very limited. If needed, live and on-demand Virtual Group Visits are also available as requested.  Request an on-campus or virtual group visit.
