Favorite Berry Memory: My favorite Berry memory was after my very last Berry home equestrian show. Our team was exhausted, having been up early and working hard all day. We were all sitting on the ground in the barn enjoying some leftover snacks after having cleared out stalls for hours, still sharing laughs and smiles despite having spent too much time together for the last three days. It was in that moment that I knew I had found a really special community at Berry and with those girls.

Favorite Berry Memory: It is hard to pick a favorite memory at Berry because there are too many to choose from. The first one that comes to mind, however, was my very last Mountain Day Weekend.

Every day that weekend was packed full with fun times and memories, and it was a bittersweet last Mountain Day at Berry.

Favorite Berry Memory: I loved getting a chance to challenge myself in one of my first intensive studio classes.

It was one of the most challenging and satisfying semesters I had at Berry, yet I learned so much. The second I switched to Creative Technologies was truly an amazing experience. Best program there is.


beaird-lori.jpgLori Beaird
Major: Nursing
From: Green Cove Springs, FL
Mentors Include: Laurie Chandler, Liz Molina, Stacey Mullis, Cabell Sweeney, Andrew McCleskey, Dr. Rowan Fannin
Favorite Berry Memory: My favorite memory of Berry was right before we left for Christmas break. It was the last day of finals, and we woke up to Berry covered in a blanket of snow. I had never seen snow like this before. It had been a difficult semester, with the loss of a good friend, David Shankles. The snow felt like the perfect way to end a grim season. All of my friends piled in a car and went up to Mountain Campus to sled down the mountain on whatever we could find, and to throw snowballs at each other. It was a day full of laughter, and magic and beauty. I am thankful to have spent the past four years on a beautiful campus and to experience growth and renewal throughout all the seasons.

Favorite Berry Memory: It's the little things at Berry that cultivate community that will be my most treasured memories. From movies nights with my best friends that lived down the hall to going to church with those same friends every Sunday morning. It's training for and running the Berry half marathon with my good friend who so happened to also be my coworker. It's seeing smiling and familiar faces every time I walked across campus and having my professors know me by name. There are so many little things about Berry, and the people there, that make it so special and that will always be my favorite memory.

My favorite memory of my time at Berry was participating in the grand march all four years. The memories made on mountain day weekend of the olympics, march, marthapalooza, and time with family and friends is something so special to the Berry culture. I also really enjoyed getting to dance the nights away with my best friends at late nights, semi-formal dances, attending Berry football games, being a part of the Bonner Scholars family, the annual run in memory of our incredible friend David Shankles, skate nights, and all of the memories I get to take with me after leaving Berry.
