    SETTING A NEW STANDARD FOR ACADEMIC AND LIFE ACHIEVEMENT.A Newberry College education reaches beyond classroom walls,

    city limits, pre-conceived notions of higher learning, and definitions

    of success. A Newberry education is a personal challenge to every

    student in pursuit of knowledge who possesses the drive to live

    and learn with purpose. It is a new model for education a living

    and learning community that transforms study into action through

    personal and professional interaction.

    administrators, professionals, and neighbors, Newberry College

    takes an innovative approach to the traditional liberal arts

    education. Through hands-on, real world experiential learning,

    a new way to see by challenging their minds as well as their

    imaginations. We stand for purpose, tools, understanding, and

    experiences designed to ready a new generation of citizen leaders

    to transform our world through knowledge, faith, and service.

    we call it education for life.

  • academicS that inSPire, motivate,

    and matter. for life.

    The inspiration for Newberry College comes from its founder, Reverend John Bachman, Naturalist,

    Scholar, and Lutheran Church leader. Bachman believed education was an awakening of ones

    academic, social, civic, and spiritual self for the good of all.

    Indeed, we still endeavor toward Bachmans innovative vision today, offering a comprehensive

    academic experience that spans across seven divisions, numerous pre-professional programs, and

    multiple dual-degree programs. With a faculty that is truly distinguished more than 75% of full-

    time members hold the highest degree in their fields our students receive personalized attention

    and guidance that cultivate not just their intellect, but their overall being.

    More than any set of skills or proficiencies, more than any collaboration or internship, more

    than study abroad or hands-on experience, what makes a Newberry education unique is the

    convergence of them all. Youll discover how skills interact with disciplines; how students, towns,

    cultures, industries, and countries are interdependent on each other; and how, as a global citizen,

    you can make a difference within them all for life.

    What Newberry awakens in you academically, socially, civically, and

    spiritually is more than the time spent pursuing a degree; its a way of life.
