Dates for the 2020-21 Academic Year will be available this fall.

Please read our Berry Bound FAQs:  

Q: Who can come to this event?  
A: Berry Bound is designed for high school seniors or transfer students (and their parents) who have been offered admission to Berry for fall 2020. 

Q: What will students do at Berry Bound?  
A: We want YOU to get involved so that you can get a feel for what life is really like here at Berry. You will get to attend your choice of interactive sessions on academics, student life and recreation. We're also planning some fun outdoor options like the Adventure Berry hike on our mountain campus or cheering on the Berry Vikings at one of several athletic events. If you're not into the great outdoors, we'll have other options to choose from, like touring our residence halls and academic buildings for one final look at where you'll spend your next four years. Your adventure is up to you! 

Q: What will my parents do?  
A: Your parents will get to learn more about Berry from sessions on academics and our campus community. They'll join you for lunch and we will have some other fun opportunities just for them!  

Q: What should I bring with me? 
A: If you plan to participate in the student-only Adventure Berry hike, you will need to bring a signed copy of the required Berry Bound - Adventure Berry hike release form*. If you will be under 18 years of age on the event date, your parent/guardian will need to sign for you. You may also wish to bring hiking boots/athletic shoes, athletic wear, water bottle, camera and any medications you may be taking.

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 2020, 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. Any high school or college-aged guests who wish to participate in the Adventure Berry hike with you will also need to bring a signed copy of the required release form. 

Q: I’ve already been to Berry for an individual visit, scholarship event or Discover Berry. How is this different?  
A: Berry Bound is designed to give you an inside look at our one-of-a-kind campus through activities that no other college can offer. 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: Admission 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 can't visit on the Berry Bound date, but I still need help finalizing my college decision. What are my other options?  
A: If you can't come to Berry Bound, we encourage you to schedule a daily 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. 

Q: I’ve applied to Berry, but I haven’t been accepted yet. Can I still come?  
A: Berry Bound is designed for students who have been offered admission for fall 2020. If you haven't been offered admission yet, please consider coming for a daily visit.    

Q: I haven't started the application process yet. Can I still come?  
A: The Discover Berry program would better serve students who are beginning their college search and/or have not yet begun the application process.

Q: What if I have a question about the event that hasn’t been answered here?  
A: Please contact Shira Kerce, Campus Visit Coordinator, at or 706.236.5492. 

*IMPORTANT NOTE: Our student Adventure Berry hike will be designed for beginners, but participation may still involve significant physical exertion. Students MUST have a signed release form in order to participate in these activities. If the student and/or their parents have not signed the waiver, they will be asked to join another option.
