Viking ChargeSingle-game tickets for the 2016 football season are now available online for alumni and friends wishing to join in the fun as coach Tony Kunczewski’s Vikings – ranked No. 21 in NCAA Division III by Lindy’s magazine – work to build on their 7-3 finish in 2015.

Tickets may be purchased for $6 apiece (including $1 online surcharge) at www.BerryGameDay.com and picked up at the will-call window on game day; no tickets will be mailed. Online purchases must be made by noon Wednesday of the week preceding each game. If you miss this cutoff or prefer to purchase your tickets in person, visit the Krannert Center Information Desk between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, or stop by the stadium ticket booth on game day. Interest is high, so get your tickets early!

This year’s home schedule is as follows:

Saturday, Sept. 3
Maryville College, 6 p.m.

Saturday, Sept. 24
Sewanee: University of the South, 6 p.m.

Saturday, Oct. 8
University of Chicago, Noon

Saturday, Oct. 29
Millsaps College, 1 p.m.

Last year’s inaugural season at Valhalla was a winner for the team and the fans, producing a 4-1 record on the Williams Field turf and average attendance of more than 3,000 per game (ranking Berry in the top 12 percent nationally for NCAA Division III).

Note to campus community: Free tickets for students and faculty/staff are available at the Krannert Center Information Desk the week preceding each home game. Students are eligible for one free ticket per game; faculty/staff receive two. Up to two additional tickets may be purchased at the time of pickup for $5 apiece.

Old MillBerry’s reputation for campus beauty received further affirmation this summer with a No. 2 national ranking on Great Value Colleges’  list of “30 Great Small Colleges for Nature Lovers.” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta Business Chronicle and Chattanooga Times-Free Press were among those sharing news of this latest distinction, which highlighted outdoor recreation on Berry’s 27,000-acre campus as well as learning and research opportunities for students and faculty.

Berry was one of only two institutions in the Southeast to make the top 10, joining Sewanee: The University of the South (which checked in at No. 4). Topping the list was California’s Humboldt State University.

Ford BuildingsBest College Reviews and Thrilllist.com have joined the growing number of publications and websites that have recognized Berry’s rightful place among the nation’s most beautiful college campuses. Best College Reviews ranked Berry ninth (we are still holding out for No. 1) on a diverse list of 100 institutions stretching from the Eastern Seaboard all the way to Hawaii. Joining Berry in the top 10 were the University of Virginia, Bryn Mawr College, the University of Chicago, Princeton University, Notre Dame, Sewanee: The University of the South, Mount Holyoke College, the University of Hawaii at Mānoa and Amherst College. Interestingly, only six of those schools (Berry among them) made Thrilllist’s alphabetical listing of the 25 Most Beautiful College Campuses in America, proving once again that while beauty is in the eye of the beholder, everybody seems to love Berry!
