Educational Activities Overview

The largest contiguous college campus in the United States, Berry College’s 27,000 acres is a major academic resource. Most of the land is managed for timber and geological resources, and also for wildlife management. Agricultural lands comprise approximately 2,000 acres for beef and dairy cattle, horses, and hayfields. Other geographical features include Appalachian foothills and sandstone ridges, rivers, creeks, streams and ponds, a water reservoir, and forested areas, ranging in elevation from 200 meters in the valley to 550 meters atop Lavendar Mountain.
