Berea and COVID-19. To protect Berea students from the COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended on-campus instruction and have sent students home. We continue to house and feed those for whom leaving campus was not an option. Such disruption has led to increased costs to Berea, from supporting students with funds to get home safely to losing hundreds of thousands of student labor hours between now and the end of April. Now more than ever, Berea College needs your support in the face of this global crisis.
