We know we don’t have to convince you of the quality and value of a Berry education, but it’s always exciting to hear others bragging about us. The most recent source of praise is U.S. News and World Report, which included the following distinctions for Berry in its annual “best colleges” issue:

No. 1 – Best Value Schools (academic quality vs. net cost of attendance)

No. 2 – Best Undergraduate Teaching

No. 4 – Regional Universities in the South

No. 10 – Most Innovative Schools

This recognition – much of it peer-driven – comes on the heels of similar praise from the likes of The Princeton Review and College Factual (highlighted in our previous issue).

The evidence remains clear – Berry is a fantastic institution of higher learning (and beautiful too!).

What do Princeton, Yale, Berry and Stanford have in common (besides being great schools, of course)? All were ranked among the top five most beautiful campuses in America by Architectural Digest. Berry came in at No. 3 on the list, trailing only Yale and Princeton.

“When it comes to a beautiful setting, Berry College can’t be beat,” wrote Stefanie Waldeck, noting the natural beauty of the 27,000-acre campus and the English Gothic architecture of the Ford Buildings.

Berry was the only school from Georgia to crack the top 50. View complete list.

This is the latest in a series of distinctions for Berry, including praise from U.S. News and World Report for the college’s commitment to undergraduate teaching and penchant for innovation, among other notable honors.

College presidents, provosts and admissions deans from across the South are singing Berry’s praises for its strong commitment to undergraduate teaching and penchant for innovation.

Their feedback, as reported in U.S. News and World Report’s annual “best colleges” edition, landed Berry at No. 3 in the undergraduate teaching category among regional universities in the South. The college also ranked 11th among “Most Innovative Schools,” to go along with a “best-value” designation by publication editors.

“At Berry, you won’t just be another face among a sea of students,” said Provost Mary Boyd. “Berry’s culture of mentoring gives you one-on-one time with your professors who can become not only mentors, but friends in your journey to fulfilling your dreams.”
