"Berry College was by far the best four years of my life. The professors there challenged us to grow as students, but supported us and helped to pick us up when we stumbled. The academic support staff was always available to meet, and the President of the school knew me personally by name. How cool is it to attend a school where you are known and people genuinely care about your success there? For example, the President of the college, Steven Briggs attended my end of the year nursing ceremony where the students received our pins stating we had completed the program requirements. President Briggs stayed behind after the ceremony to congratulate me and then wanted to meet my whole family who was there supporting me! We even had a picture taken together, and he seemed so proud of me. Berry College is special place where no matter who you pass on your way to class, theyll smile at you, wave, and ask how your day is going- and GENUINELY mean it. Its a place where community is fostered and students are challenged to give back to one another. Its a place where no student is left behind, and we pick each other up. For example we have the Save a Student Scholarship in which students raise money for their fellow classmates who have faced a financial crisis and without these funds would no longer be able to attend Berry College. Knowing you have been a part of some one elses success makes you feel so good about yourself- like you are making a difference in the life of someone you do not even know. While the nursing program is relatively new (only 5 years old), we have some of the best professors in the south and certainly one of the best hospital systems to learn from. Two miles from campus is Redmond Regional Hospital System which has the best team of cardiac doctors in the Northwest Georgia area. A little farther down the road is Floyd Medical Hospital which has a state of the art intensive care unit as well as the go-to pediatric unit in Northwest Georgia. With the newest technology at our disposal, students are able to get hands-on experience learning from some of the best nurses and doctors around, and without having to travel incredible distances to complete clinical rotations. Each student in the nursing program also has the opportunity to do a cross-cultural immersion clinical experience in Costa Rica working in local children's hospital (burn specialty unit), and also serving at a local orphanage."

"Berry's work program makes it one of the most unique universities in the world. Every student is offered a job the first day of school. This gives each student opportunities to work in a career related to their major, to advance in leadership positions, and to develop valuable work experience while still obtaining a degree."

"Alumni contribute a great deal in order to aid incoming students, but even then I needed outside loans to pay for tuition. The quality of the school is amazing though - that's been the reason I've stayed and put up with my debt."
