The mission of the Berry Alumni Association is to advance the interests of Berry College and to create opportunities for alumni to participate fully in the life and vitality of the global Berry community. The Association is an integral part of Berry and serves as a support organization for the school. It has no identity or incorporation apart from Berry and is entitled to all rights, privileges and responsibilities granted to other components of the school.

Alumni Association Membership

Berry communications are sent only to members of the Alumni Association who are considered to be active members. If a member does not have contact information on file at Berry, has requested to be excluded, or has had no Berry involvement within the past 30 years, he/she will be automatically excluded from certain Berry communications. If you believe you are on the inactive members list, please e-mail alumni@berry.edu or call (800) 782-0130 with your current contact information and request to receive all Berry alumni communications.

Associate membership The spouse of each automatic association member is an associate member with all privileges of a member except the right to vote and hold office.

Honorary membership may be conferred upon individuals who have given distinctive service to Berry College and who are elected as honorary members by the majority vote of the Alumni Council. Honorary members enjoy all privileges of members except the right to vote and hold office. Honorary membership is not conferred upon associate members.
