COVID-19 Update: The Berry College campus will reopen to the public beginning Sunday, May 9, 2021 until further notice. Hours are 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and the campus is accessible for outdoor recreation use only; there is no public access to buildings.
One of Berry’s most distinguishing factors, contributing to both its beauty and grace, is Berry’s vast array of deer. The fantastic ratio of students to deer on campus, is 1:7. The deer do, however, prefer to stay near the edge of the woods, but on occasions they wander in various areas of campus.
Other fauna on campus include various types of avians including bald eagles, waterfowl, coyotes, turkeys, and other indigenous species in northwest Georgia.
Majority of the wildlife stays within the WMA (Wildlife MAnagement Area) boundaries where several controlled hunts are conducted during the year.
