Outdoor AdventureAre you tired of all the negativity in politics? Ready for a platform we can all get behind? We’ve got the perfect candidate … BERRY!

BuzzFeed has already declared us to be the world’s most beautiful college campus, while America Unraveled recently ranked us the No. 1 up-and-coming liberal arts college. Now we have our sights set on the title of Top Adventure College, to be determined by readers of Blue Ridge Mountain Outdoors. Berry is one of eight remaining colleges and universities in a March Madness-style online competition culminating April 18-25 with a “David-meets-Goliath” showdown matching the winners of the small-school (enrollment less than 5,000) and large-school brackets. Berry knocked out Washington and Lee University in the opening round, then defeated Montreat College in the “Sweet 16.” Now we’re facing off against Emory & Henry.

In news that should come as a surprise to no one in the alumni community, Berry has once again earned national recognition for the quality of its educational experience and the incredible beauty of its campus.

College leaders from across the country have chosen Berry as the nation’s No. 1 “up-and-coming” liberal arts college, according to the U.S. News 2014 Best Colleges edition. The distinction stems from a spring 2013 survey in which liberal arts college officials were asked to nominate institutions making the most promising and innovative changes in the areas of academics, faculty or student life. More details.

Also this summer, Berry was included on a Buzzfeed list of 41 Scenic College Campuses that were made for Instagram. Berry ranked 25th on a list that also included such notable institutions as Yale, Stanford, Vanderbilt and Notre Dame. While the recognition is exciting, the ranking seems a bit low. Speaking for Berry alumni everywhere, we demand a recount! Berry on Instagram.
