Please read our Decision Berry FAQs:
Q: Who can come to this event?
A: Decision Berry is designed for high school seniors or transfer students (and their parents) who have been offered admission to Berry for Fall 2017.
Q: What will students do at Decision Berry?
A: We want YOU to get involved so that you can get a feel for what life is really like here at Berry. Sit in on a live class or attend your choice of interactive sessions on residence life, student activities, and student work opportunities. Join us for a round of disc golf and tour our residence halls and academic buildings for one final look at where you'll spend your next four years. We also invite you to join us for an optional dinner and activities on Sunday evening, and you can request to stay with a host student on campus Sunday night. Your adventure is up to you!

Q: What will my parents do?
A: Your parents will get to attend sessions on academics, campus life, and the Berry parent experience. View a tentative Parent Schedule (2 pages).
Q: I have friends or siblings who would like to attend with me. What should we do?
A: If your friends or siblings are also students who have been offered admission to Berry for Fall 2017, we'd like for them to register for the event separately so that we can be prepared with personalized information when they check in. If your friends or siblings are prospective students who have not yet applied or been admitted to Berry, they are welcome to accompany you or your parents for the day and do not need to register separately. However, please note that because this day is designed for admitted students, there will be no specific programming for prospective students.
Q: I’ve already been to Berry for an individual visit, scholarship event, or Discover Berry. How is this different?
A: Decision Berry is designed to give you the information you need most in finding the best college fit for you. Each session is designed for YOU to be actively involved and experience life from a student's perspective. You'll have more opportunities to get to know us and other incoming students, and there will be plenty of options to explore the campus so you can see what you want to see.
Q: I’d like to take one last look at the dorms, dining hall and classrooms. Will I be able to do that?
A: Absolutely! You'll have several options to check out these spaces.
Q: What if I need to talk to someone about my financial aid?
A: Admissions and Financial Aid staff will be available throughout the day to answer any questions you may have about the financial aid process or your award.
Q: I'm staying with a host student on campus. What do I need to bring?
A: Please plan to bring a pillow and sleeping bag or air mattress with bed linens, as very few host students will have an extra bed or couch/futon. In addition to your clothing for Sunday night and Monday, you should also plan to bring toiletries, towel, chargers for your electronic devices, and any medications you may be taking. We will provide emergency contact information for you and your parents when you are paired with your host.
Q: I can't visit on the Decision Berry date, but I still need help finalizing my college decision. What are my other options?
A: If you can't come to Decision Berry, we would encourage you to schedule an individual campus visit with the office of admission. We can arrange classroom observations, meetings, or even an overnight stay with a current student to help you get the information you need to make your college choice. You can schedule an individual visit by
Q: I’ve applied to Berry, but I haven’t been accepted yet. Can I still come?

Q: I haven't started the application process yet. Can I still come?
