Welcome to Berea College!


We are so excited to have you as a member of our community, and are committed to helping facilitate your transition to Berea throughout your first year on campus.  College can be one of the most wonderful, challenging, stimulating, and rewarding experiences of your life, and at Berea you will find yourself pushed to grow in ways you may have never imagined.  We want you to feel welcomed and valued in your new community, and will work to provide you with exciting new opportunities to reach your academic and co-curricular goals.

Berea College recognizes the unique needs of new students and the importance of supporting you through your transition.  The information in this website is designed to help answer questions you might have, and connect you with the institution in ways that will help facilitate that transition.  You were admitted to Berea College because we have confidence that you can succeed here, and we are excited to have the opportunity to help you achieve that success.
