Welcome to the Berea College Family

Welcome to the Mountaineer family! Our goal in the Office of First-Year Initiatives is to be a resource for you as your student begins their journey into and through Berea College.  The staff in our office recognize the role you play in their college success, and we thank you for providing the extra level of support that they will need to continue that success.  To help you stay informed we will provide you with important information on the ways you can engage with the campus community and best support them.  We invite you to join us on campus for events such as Summer Connections (June) and Family Day (September), and also read through the Mountaineer Parent & Family Newsletter that you will receive quarterly throughout your student’s first-year.

Need further assistance?  Feel free to email any concerns to, or contact me directly at the email or number below.  You can stay engaged about what’s happening in our office & around campus through our Facebook Page.
