DEREA, FRluNU OF WORKING STUDENTS. Berea College with Ua
affiliated schorls, Is not a money-making Institution. It requires oertals
fees, but It ei ponds many thousands of dollars each year for the benefit
of Its students, g.vlng highest advantages at lowest cost, and arranging
as far as potslblo for students to earn and save In every way.
OUR SCHOOL IS LIKE A FAMI LY, with careful regulations to pro
tect the charaetor aud reputation ot the young people. Our students come
from the boat families and are earnest to do well end Improve. For any

many assist in work of boarding hall, farm and shops, receiving valuable

PERSONAL EXPENSES tor clothing, laundry, postage, books, etc.,
vary with different people. Berea favors plain clotbiug. Our climate is the .

CO-OPERATIVE STORE furnishes books, toilet articles, work uniforms,
umbrellas and other necessary articles at cost.
LIVING EXPENSES are really below coat. Tin College asks no rent
for the fine buildings in which students live, charging only enough room
rent to pay for cleaning, repairs, fuel, lights, and washing of bedding aud
towels. For table board, without coffwe or extras, $1.35 a week. In the fall,
and $1.50 In winter. For furnished room, with fuel, lights, washing of bed
ding, 40 to 60 cents for each person.
SCHOOL FEES are two. First a "DOLLAR DEPOSIT," as guarantee
for return of room key, library books, etc. This Is paid but once, and !
returned when the student departs.
Second an "INCIDENTAL FEE" to help on expenses for care of school
buildings, hosoital, library, etc (Students pay nothing for tuition or ser
vices of teachers all our Instruction is a free gift). The Incidental Fee
