Barnwell Chapel

The renovation of Barnwell Chapel is one of many crowdfunding projects you can support this spring.

Support a crowdfunding project, snag a magnet!

Are you looking for a way to show your school spirit that’s absolutely unique to Berry? We’ve got the perfect thing – an “Always Berry” deer magnet. For a limited time only, you can get your own outdoor magnet with a gift of $5 or more to any of our spring crowdfunding projects. Make your gift at Berry Funder, and we’ll mail you a magnet for your car or fridge. Support two or more projects, and you get BOTH the doe and the buck!

Crowdfunding options range from the renovation of Barnwell Chapel to scholarships honoring Rufus Massey (75C) and Dr. Chaitram Singh. You can also make gifts supporting student entrepreneurship, study abroad, the Longleaf Pine Project and the David Shankles Student Emergency Relief Fund, among other options.

Visit Berry Funder today to make your gift and “join the herd.” Once you get your magnet, be sure to snap a photo and share on social media using the hashtag #AlwaysBerry.

Superb ScholarsGund Professor of Government and International Studies Chaitram Singh (near right) traveled to his native Guyana in September to accept the 2012 Guyana Prize for Literature. Singh, a graduate of the United States Military Academy and Berry faculty member since 1984, was honored in the “Best First Work of Fiction” category for his novel, The Flour Convoy. Another Singh novel, The February 23rd Coup, was runner-up for “Best Work of Fiction.” His award was presented by Guyana President Donald Ramoutar. Read more.

Also making news among the faculty is Professor of Chemistry Gary Breton (far right), who has been awarded a Fuller E. Callaway Chair by the Callaway Foundation. Breton currently serves as interim dean of Berry’s School of Mathematical and Natural Sciences, a role he assumed earlier this year when Dr. Bruce Conn made the decision to return full time to the classroom.
