ALUMNI EVENTS

We love having our alumni back for events! From Mountain Day on campus to alumni chapter events near you and lots more, find out what events we have coming up near you below. 

MOUNTAIN DAY

Save the Date: This year's Mountain Day is October 10, 2020

Held in early October each year, Mountain Day got its start in 1914 as a birthday celebration for Martha Berry. Today, it has grown into a three-day homecoming extravaganza that both showcases and strengthens our bonds as a community.

ALUMNI WEEKEND AND ALUMNI WORK WEEK

More than 200 Berry alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends took part in our first-ever Virtual Work Week, May 11-15, going above and beyond by hosting food and blood drives, making face masks, and writing notes of encouragement and thanks to alumni working in health care as well as the Class of 2020.

Updated April 16, 2020

This is typically the time of year when we are busy preparing for two of the most anticipated events on Berry’s calendar: Alumni Weekend and Alumni Work Week. Unfortunately, we all know this is not a typical year. Like everyone else, we are doing everything we can to ensure the health of our extended community – alumni included – by supporting local, state and national directives meant to curtail the spread of COVID-19.

Unfortunately, this means that neither Alumni Weekend nor Alumni Work Week will take place as planned this year.

While disappointed that we will miss out on seeing you this spring, we are already talking with class reunion chairs about the possibility of rescheduling the reunions that would have taken place during Alumni Weekend. Thank you for your understanding and your patience as we all work together to navigate these challenging times. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call Jennifer Beard, Director of Alumni Engagement, at 706-290-2170

NETWORKING EVENTS 

  • Viking-Employer Connections
    An opportunity for alumni, local employers, and current Berry students to network, these events are held through the Berry Career Center in various locations around Rome and Atlanta throughout the year.
  • Viking Sports Alliance 
    During this one-day event, students partner with alumnae to identify the strengths and skills that Berry develops in its athletes, and how those qualities translate into the world of work. Held in January or February.

YOUNG ALUMNI EVENTS 

  • Young Alumni Partner Program (YAPP) 
    The Young Alumni Partner Program helps seniors get ready for life after Berry as they tackle all the big important questions. Seniors are invited to connect with young alumni who’ve been there and can share their wisdom about life outside the bubble.
  • Young Alumni Christmas Party 
    Join us as we celebrate the season and support Berry students. Good music, food, and friends. Held in December at the Christopher Browning Pavilion at Oak Hill.

BERRY STUDENT EVENTS

  • Always Berry Week 
    A celebration of what binds us together as a Berry family. Held in late March/early April.
  • Senior Send-Off
    Our celebration of our soon-to-be alumni, with great Berry gear and ways to give back to current and future Berry students. Held in early May.
  • Student Philanthropy Events
    The Office of Alumni Relations partners with campus organizations such as KCAB, Athletics and Student Government, to offer ways for Berry students to support their fellow classmates.
