The Berry campus is like no other. At 27,000 acres, it’s nearly twice the size of Manhattan, with lakes and ponds, a pair of nesting eagles and 88 miles of trails. Even more striking than the natural beauty is the warmth of our people and the sense of energy and ownership that fuels our unmistakable culture.

Which means you can’t get to know all of Berry on a website. Not really. You need to come stand in the center of campus to get a panoramic sense of everything there is to learn and do and experience here.

Discover Berry Preview Days

Join us for a daylong introduction to all things Berry. We’ll connect you with students and faculty from every department on campus. You’ll have a chance to meet your admission counselor and ask any questions you might have about the application or financial aid processes. We’ll give you a tour of our campus home and even treat you to lunch! This is a great introduction to the Berry experience.

Daily Visits

To get a sense of how Berry might fit your specific academic and extracurricular interests, consider a daily visit. Select a day and time that works best, and let us know what you’d like to do while you’re here. We highly recommend you take a student-led campus tour and attend an information session led by an admission counselor. If you visit during the academic year, you can also visit a class, stay overnight, meet with a coach or club advisor and more. Just let us know what you’re interested in learning or experiencing, and we’ll take care of the rest.

The Office of Admission is open year-round Monday-Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm and on select Saturdays throughout the year.

Schedule your daily visit.

Admitted Student Events

Once you have been admitted, campus visits take on a whole new meaning. Do yourself a favor and visit all the campuses you’re seriously considering. Make sure you have all the information you need to make sure you find the best fit.

Decision Berry is your chance to be a Berry student for a day. You’ll attend classes, meet current students, explore campus and learn about life in Rome. Your parents and other family members are welcome to join us as well, but we’ll keep them busy while you experience and explore this place that might well be your home for the next four years. (You may arrive a day early if you’d like to experience an evening at Berry as well.)

Spring 2020 dates will be available soon!

Berry Bound is for admitted students who want a firsthand glimpse at all that is possible on the world’s largest campus (research, fieldwork, unmatched outdoor recreation). Take a hike on the mountain campus and learn about BOLD (Berry’s Outdoor Leadership Development). You’ll also get a chance to connect with professors, attend campus events and ask whatever questions you might have as you make this important decision. This is your opportunity to get a sense of the life you’d lead and the community you’d be part of as a Berry student. Parents and other family members are welcome to join us as well, but will have their own schedule while you are off exploring.

Spring 2020 dates will be available soon!
