Tag Archives: Alumni Weekend

Time is running out to register for three of the biggest events on the alumni calendar: Alumni Weekend (May 18-20), Young Alumni Weekend (May 18-20) and Alumni Work Week (May 20-25). All three promise good times, great friends and a wealth of new memories. Here are some of the highlights:

Alumni Weekend kicks off with the annual Distinguished Alumni Awards and Golden Guard Gala in Krannert’s Spruill Ballroom; also on tap are reunions for the classes of 1947H, 1952H, 1952C, 1957H, 1957C, 1961C, 1962H, 1962C, 1967A and 1967C.

Now in its second year, Young Alumni Weekend offers our newest alumni (those who attended Berry in the last 10 years) the opportunity to “party on the green” at Oak Hill, rekindle intramural rivalries and leave a legacy through various service projects. New this year is a live auction benefiting the Season’s Harvest student enterprise.

Alumni Work Week honors Berry’s proud “work” tradition, with teams of alumni investing time and energy in numerous campus projects.

Online registration is available by clicking the links above. The deadline is May 11, so don’t delay!

Looking for something fun to do in late spring? We’ve got not one, not two but three GREAT OPTIONS: Alumni Weekend, Young Alumni Weekend and Alumni Work Week.

Alumni Weekend, May 18-20, will feature college, academy and high school reunions for the classes of 1947, 1952, 1957, 1962 and 1967, as well as the presentation of the 2012 Distinguished Alumni Awards and the Golden Guard induction of Berry’s two 50th year reunion classes, 1962H and 1962C.

That same weekend, young alumni (those who graduated in the last 10 years) are invited to their own celebration including campus service projects, intramural competition, a party on the green at Oak Hill and, new this year, a live auction to raise money for The Berry Farms Season’s Harvest, one of Berry’s student-operated campus enterprises.

The fun continues with Alumni Work Week, May 20-25, which offers opportunities for alumni of all ages (and skill levels) to renew old friendships and build new ones while working side-by-side on various campus projects.

Information and online registration for all these events is available by clicking the links above. If you have questions, please contact the alumni relations office at 800-782-0130 (toll free) or alumni@berry.edu.
