Berea College named one of nation’s best colleges

BEREA, Ky.(WTVQ) -Berea College has once again made the Princeton Review’s list of Best Colleges.

In its just-released publication of “The Best 385 Colleges: 2020 Edition,” Princetown Review states Berea’s “no-tuition promise” is one of the reasons the school made the list.

Berea’s “Tuition Promise Scholarship” covers the $44,100 annual tuition cost for every student. Berea College admits only academically promising students with limited financial resources, primarily from Kentucky and Appalachia, although students come from 40 states and 70 countries.

Berea is one of eight federally recognized Work Colleges, so students work 10 hours or more weekly, earning money for books, housing, and meals.

The Princeton Review’s list of best colleges is based on input from students at America’s schools on a survey that asked students 84 questions about their school’s academics, administration, campus community and themselves.
