Gift of Berry

WHAT A SELECTION! This body scrub is one of many gifts available through Berry Student Enterprises.

You can give the gift of Berry this holiday season with handcrafted items made by Berry Student Enterprises. The online store managed by the students has many products including cheeses, beef rubs, beeswax lotion and candles, body scrubs, beard oil, and much more.

For the holiday season, the Student Enterprises are happy to include a greeting card with a personalized message with any online order. They are selling limited-edition Christmas body scrubs and soaps, all handmade and festively scented.

“It’s almost like Santa’s workshop, with an assembly line at the enterprises every year, shipping gifts to alumni,” said Ben Lord, student director of the Berry Enterprises.

They are willing to create specially made baskets, perfect for client gifts or to show off your alma mater to non-Berry friends. Just call 706-378-2932 to talk with the students about what special requests you have in mind.

“It’s cool for people to be able to show off gifts from their school, so we are going to give them that opportunity,” Lord said.

Christmas delivery is guaranteed for any orders placed before Monday, Dec. 16.

Animal Science Laboratory at Rollins

Architectural rendering of the Animal Science Laboratory at Rollins, slated for construction later this year.

Giving to LifeReady: The Berry College Campaign for Opportunity has now surpassed $91 million! This includes more than $43 million in commitments for Gate of Opportunity and general use scholarships. We are truly grateful to everyone in the Berry community who has supported the campaign to date. A special shout out goes to our alumni, whose gifts account for nearly half the campaign total. Thank you for your support!

Highlights in 2015 included the opening of two major campaign priorities – the new campus Welcome Center and Valhalla stadium for football, lacrosse, and track and field – and Audrey Morgan’s $1 million challenge commitment to fast-track fundraising for the renovation of Blackstone Hall and construction of a new campus theatre. There was also further development of initiatives within Berry’s Integrity in Leadership and Entrepreneurship centers.

Construction of two other campaign-funded projects – the Animal Science Laboratory at Rollins and an event pavilion at Oak Hill – is on tap for 2016. In addition, fundraising is underway for Ford Auditorium’s renovation as a recital hall and construction of an animal science addition for McAllister Hall.

Visit www.berry.edu/lifeready to learn more about the various priorities, and thanks again for helping to make the dream of a “life-ready” education a reality for our students!

Applewood Smoked Gouda

Cheese made exclusively from milk produced by The Berry Farms Jersey Milk student enterprise is one of the choices in this month's Alumni Accent poll.

In July’s Alumni Accent poll, we asked you to hark back to your earliest days as a Berry student and share your most vivid memory of summer orientation. The No. 1 response was that very first drive onto campus (34% of the vote). The first night spent in the residence halls was a close second (32%). Nineteen percent recalled meeting friends they still have today, while the rest of the votes were split between the heat (in the days before AC) with 8%, getting your first class schedule (5%) and seeing the first of many Berry deer (2%).

This month’s question is inspired by the story about Zane Cochran’s new book, The Beauty of Berry College. It would no doubt make a GREAT GIFT for Berry alumni. Can you think of others? We certainly can. Scroll to the blog footer to vote for your favorite.
