Year of Service


Year of Service is a themed housing program that was established to promote a direct link between Berry students and the Rome/Floyd community. Year of Service provides an outlet for sustained service with a community partner as well as an avenue to engage the Berry community around the opportunities, challenges and needs of their community partner and the societal issue(s) they seek to combat. This sustained service project is a true complement to the culture and mission of Berry College.

All Year of Service groups are housed in Cottage-style housing, which is billed at the traditional housing rate. Cottages and Year of Service groups range in capacity from 6-16. Most cottages have a mix of single, double, triple and quad capacity rooms. All cottages have a common area, kitchen and at least two bathrooms.
