Hi I am a prospective student this fall! I just got my Berea admission packet.  I got several questions to ask:
I am interested in taking up pre-med and wondering about the research opportunities available for undergrads at Berea.
Is it difficult to graduate from Berea? Is their grading system very strict?
Is the environment very competitive?
Can we choose our jobs or are we assigned to them?
How friendly are the students? Can newbies fit in quickly? I am a bit shy so I am wondering.

I can't answer all of your questions, but I just finished my first year, so I'll try to help you out.

The first year you are assigned a job, but after that you can choose. I was assigned to Broomcraft which I was really apprehensive about, but I didn't change my job when I got the chance because I ended up really liking it.

I think it's pretty easy to make friends, because the campus is so small and there are so many events/activities when you first get there. Plus, I made a lot of friends at my job.

Anyway, good luck! Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Graduation is really a celebration of the hell you went through to get to that point, especially in your Senior year. You thought High School was tough? Wait until you graduate from Berea College. That diploma really means something to you when you have so many sleepless all-nighters behind you.

Grading system is what it is. The Attendance Policy is what you have to be careful of--if you miss class, you could lose your course credit, and then you could lose your scholarship.

I graduated in 2006, and I came in in 2001. I had a five-year program in MusEd, but I also spent a semester in NZ and a summer in Salzburg.

Hope this helps you!
