According to assistant vice president of enrollment management Brett Kennedy, Berry is getting more diverse every year.
“The reality is that the world is changing, and I think Berry is responding to that,” Kennedy said.
Race and ethnicity are reported by students on their Berry applications, and the numbers show that the incoming class of 2021 is more diverse than last year’s incoming class.
Kennedy says that Berry admissions staff look for students who are a good fit for Berry, and that they want to understand applicants’ backgrounds, not just their test scores.
The new class has students from 25 states and 10 countries including Austrailia, Bermuda, China, Costa Rica, Germany, Haiti, Kanya, South Korea, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
