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.

In regards to COVID-19 – All prospective students and their guests are welcome to visit Berea College through the Admissions Office. Per college policy, facemasks or coverings are required for entry into any campus building.  We encourage social distancing regardless of vaccination status and we strongly recommend unvaccinated guests – and those with concern for safety –  wear facemasks throughout their entire visit or choose a virtual visit. 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 have to cancel attending an Admissions Office event. Please see our additional guidelines linked below for more information.

*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.
