Why Students Work
At Berry College, because students work and serve each other, an extraordinary sense of community is created. Students are participants in the life and work of the college as well as consumers of the educational program.
In Berry's early history, all students worked because they had to. Today, though the program is not mandatory, many students work to gain the dimension to the educational program that most colleges cannot offer. The learning derived from the work experience ranges from basic work skills to educationally related skills. A Berry graduate can have several years of work experience reflected on his/her resume.
