A long, wet winter has finally given way to another glorious Berry spring – just in time for three of the biggest events on our alumni calendar. The fun gets under way May 17-19 with Alumni Weekend and Young Alumni Weekend and continues May 19-24 with Alumni Work Week. The deadline to register for all events is May 10, so click the links below and sign up today!

Alumni Weekend offers a little something for everyone, from the traditional Friday morning golf scramble to the semi-formal Alumni Awards and Golden Guard Gala. The schedule includes reunion events for the high school, academy and college classes of 1943, 1948, 1953, 1958, 1963 and 1968, as well as Sunday morning worship services for both high school and college alumni.

Young Alumni Weekend invites graduates from the last 10 years to relive their college days as they explore the campus, compete for intramural glory and enjoy each other’s company at a mixer on the “Moon Roof” in downtown Rome. There will also be service opportunities, a career discussion panel, and the Young Alumni Live Auction and Dinner at Oak Hill featuring entertainment by Candler Hobbs (11C).

Alumni Work Week provides the perfect opportunity for alumni and friends of all ages to participate in a variety of on-campus projects celebrating Berry’s work heritage. Sign up for the whole week or just come for a day or two, whatever fits your schedule.
