Welcome to Berry!


Congratulations! Are you relishing in this life-defining moment? You’ve earned it through consistent hard work. Through showing up and digging in. Celebrate! You did it!

You have much to offer the Berry community and we have much to offer you.

As you consider where you’ll be most successful, think of Berry as a place

  • To spend your college years ensuring that your intellectual life is purposefully related to your real-world work experiences – and to your growth as a person
  • To get eight (guaranteed!) semesters of paid, hands-on, professional development experiences and the related skills and resume enhancements
  • To belong to a community with a 116-year legacy of mentorship, built on the belief that people can – and should – make each other better
  • To build a second home on a campus that is not just the world’s largest, but arguably its friendliest and most beautiful
  • To wake up each morning knowing that the people of Berry are thinking of your day-to-day learning and experiences in the context of your eventual career
Berry will get you to where you want to go. 

Tips for future Vikings:

CHECK YOUR VIKINGWEB ACCOUNT

VikingWeb is your student portal. You’ll use it as a Berry student, so we want you to get familiar with it now. There’s great information on VikingWeb. It’s where you can pay your deposit, access enrollment forms, and navigate to scholarship information.

To log in to VikingWeb, follow these easy steps:

  1. Head to vikingweb.berry.edu
  2. Enter your six-digit ID number on the top right for your username.  
    *Forgot your number? Give us a call, and we’ll let you know what it is.
  3. Enter your password. 
    **Forgot your password? Click on “I forgot my password” and we’ll email you a reset link.

VISIT CAMPUS

You may have visited us before you were accepted. But that was before. Now it’s after. After you know that you can call this place your home. We’d love to see you on campus and to show you around your new home.

You can visit nearly any day on your own or join us for a large, admitted student celebration event (described below). 

  1. Decision Berry on February 17-18, 2019 or March 3-4, 2019
    Decision Berry
    is your chance to be a Berry student for the day. We welcome you to come early for an overnight if you’d like! You’ll attend classes, meet with current students, hear about Rome, and more! Your parents and family members are welcome to join us too. They’ll have their own schedule because as much as they’d like it, they can’t come with you to Berry when you’re a student. So, we want you to go on your own adventure, and we promise to make time for you to connect and compare notes along the way. Learn more about Decision Berry.
  2. Berry Bound on April 6, 2019 
    Want to know what life is like on the world’s largest campus (read laboratory, field site, playground)? Berry Bound is for you. Assuming the weather is on our side, you’ll hike on the mountain campus with current students, learn about the BOLD (Berry Outdoor Leadership Development) program, connect with professors, and attend campus events. It’s your opportunity to learn more about the home you’ll build and the community you’ll have when you’re a Berry student. Again, we’d love for your parents and family members to join you on your trip to Rome and promise you’ll have time to see them throughout the day. They will, however, have their own schedule so they can get used to what life will be like when you’re here. Learn more about Berry Bound.
Whatever you choose will be right for you. If you need help, reach out to your admissions counselor. We’d love to learn more about what you want to do during your trip so we can help you pick the experience that fits you. 

YOUR FirST YEAR AT BERRY

Here, the path of your intellect, the substance of your days, and the arc of your personal growth are carefully related – reinforced and amplified through practice and reflection. We do it this way for the time-tested reasons:

  1. The stronger your foundation, the higher your ceiling
  2. The deeper your values, the steadier your path.

You’ll start in your first-year through the First-Year Experience. You’ll take a seminar where you think about where you want to go and begin to chart a path forward. You’ll be asked what is most important to you now and what you think will be most important to you on graduation day. You’ll have time to reflect on your responses. To change your mind. To see how you grow over the semester. You’ll find surprises along the way. You’ll be driven by the notion that you can (and will) make the world a better place.
