Amelia Earhart

Three years before disappearing over the Pacific while attempting to circumnavigate the globe, Amelia Earhart (third from right) posed with Martha Berry during a 1934 visit to Berry.

If the results of our latest Alumni Accent poll are any indication, Berry alumni LOVE their campus landmarks!

Our January question – Which Berry landmark is your favorite? – drew unprecedented response. Two mountain campus favorites – Frost Chapel and the Old Mill – led the way, each drawing 30 percent of the vote. Ford Dining Hall was next with 21 percent, followed by the House ‘o Dreams (9 percent), Oak Hill (6 percent), Possum Trot (2 percent) and Roosevelt Cabin (2 percent).

This month, we turn our attention from famous places to famous people. Scroll to the footer to tell us which notable Berry visitor you would most like to have met.

Frost ChapelAnother month, another record response to the Alumni Accent poll! The February poll question – Which campus landmark would you most like to see blanketed in snow? – drew 115 responses, besting the previous record of 108 set in December. Frost Chapel finished with 30% of the vote to edge out the Ford Buildings (28%) for favorite snowy landmark. The Old Mill (25%) was a close third, followed by the House o’ Dreams (8%), Berry College Chapel (5%), Barnwell Chapel (2%) and the Normandy Complex (2%).

Since we’ve had not one but two snowfalls at Berry over the last seven weeks, we’re happy to share this picture of the winner taken by student Mary Claire Stewart during the Jan. 28 storm. The source of the photo (Berry’s Facebook page) also provides a perfect segue into this month’s question. Scroll to the blog footer to participate.
