For more than a century, Berry College has emphasized the importance of a comprehensive and balanced education that unites a challenging academic program with opportunities for meaningful work experience, spiritual and moral growth, and significant service to others. This commitment to providing a firsthand educational experience--expressed as "Head, Heart and Hands" by college founder Martha Berry--remains just as relevant today as it was when the institution was founded in 1902.
Berry is an independent, coeducational college of approximately 2,100 students that offers undergraduate degree programs in the sciences, humanities, arts and social sciences, as well as undergraduate and master's level opportunities in business and teacher education. Students are encouraged to enrich their academic studies through participation in an on-campus work experience program, and more than 90 percent take advantage of this unique opportunity to gain valuable real-world experience prior to graduation. The Berry College Archives is located on the 2nd floor of Memorial Library on the Berry College campus.
