Hi and thanks for your interest in Berry College! I joined the Admissions staff in February 2008 after graduating from Berry in December 2007.
As a high school student looking at different colleges, I remember coming onto Berry’s campus of more than 26,000 acres and being amazed at the absolute beauty of the school. It is the sort of place that once you have visited; you begin to understand why it is so special. In addition, it is an excellent academic environment and provides multiple opportunities for its students to get involved on campus.
While a student, I was involved in the Bonner Scholars Program, the WinShape College Program, and ran on the Cross Country and Track team. As a Bonner, I volunteered at Glenwood Primary School as a Physical Education Assistant teaching children the importance of staying active and having fun doing it. In the WinShape Program, I discovered that close relationships in college can help lift you physically, emotionally and spiritually. And as for the Cross Country and Track team, I was able to be a part of a very competitive program that trains on over 85 miles of trails on campus; yet they still know how to balance being competitive and having fun. They are some of my closest friends that I consider to be like a second family. The best part about being on a team like that at a place like this…you have memories that will last a lifetime!
Please feel free to ask me any questions you might have about Berry. And remember, the best way to truly see a college is to visit!
