35 miles south of Lexington, KY is the small town of Berea, which is home to Berea College. Founded in 1855 by abolitionist John Gregg Fee, Berea College admitted both black and white students in a fully integrated curriculum, making it the first racially integrated, coed college in the South and one of a very few colleges to admit both men and women in the mid-19th century. Founded on Scriptural ideals, Berea College maintains a Christian identity separate from any particular denomination. The 140 acre rural campus has a blend of traditional and contemporary architecture (including roof-mounted solar panels). It is also noted that the school does not charge tuition; all students are engaged in work-study programs. Among the many alumni of Berea College is Jack Roush, founder of Roush Fenway Racing.
