At Berea, we believe talented students should not miss out on a high-quality education just because they cannot afford rising tuition costs. No Berea student pays tuition. The Berea Fund touches the lives of every Berea College student in so many ways and enables the great mission of the College by completing the tuition scholarship every student receives.
Intercollegiate and intramural athletics contribute to a healthy lifestyle and sense of belonging, camaraderie, and pride for all students. Institutional data show that participation in athletics improves student retention, and Berea athletes consistently earn a GPA of at least 3.0. For these reasons and more, Berea plans to build an indoor athletics practice facility for soccer, baseball, and softball. Your gift will help students succeed on the field and in the classroom.
