Welcome New Alums!


Nearly 60 excited undergraduate and graduate students received diplomas during the Berry College Fall 2014 Commencement Dec. 13 in the College Chapel. 

The convening remarks were given by President Stephen Briggs. He congratulated the Class of 2014 and asked the graduates to consider the impact they will have on whatever place they choose to go after Berry.

“Ask yourselves, ‘Will it matter that I was ever there? Did I leave a place better than I found it?’” Briggs said.

The commencement address was given by Communication Department Chair Bob Frank, who will retire at the end of the 2014-2015 academic year.

“Time is on your side. Don’t be afraid to hit that pause button and explore options,” Frank advised.

Due to a declining amount of students graduating in the fall, this was the last December ceremony.
