I think getting a degree from Berry is valued highly. Of course, it's not like an Ivy League degree but locally Berry is known as a great school. Especially for students hoping to go to vet school, like I am!

I LOOOVE my academic advisor!!! He was also my professor for Intro to Animal Science and Orientation to Animal Science. He's a nice guy and he's funny! When things got bumpy for me a couple of time during my first year, he always reached out to me to see if I was okay! I also love my honors advisor, Dr. Whelan. I liked the way she conducted class (she was my Writing & Rhetoric professor). I also like how she cares about the honors program and all of her students! My favorite class so far has been Intro to Animal Science because we got so much hands on experience so quickly!! I definitely wasn't expecting that. It was amazing.

My experience as a young Afro-Latina at Berry has been interesting to say the least. I love my friends and I love my professors, but there are some very hateful and/or ignorant people on campus that make my experience less than it should be. I've loved all of my animal science classes so far because they're really fun and I'm finally learning about what I love. I think I would chose Berry again if I had to do everything over BUT I would try to steel myself for the hardships of being a minority in a severe majority.
