All month long, we encourage you to:

With continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and a growing number of cases across our state and region, college leaders have decided to host a virtual Mountain Day celebration for alumni on Saturday, Oct. 10. A final decision for students and parents will be made closer to the event date.
We will announce some of our contest winners on Mountain Day (October 10), and will announce all other winners within 1 week of Mountain Day. The "Fan Favorite" winner for the #mtnday20 contest will be announced the week of October 19 to allow time for voting.
Before joining on either your computer or mobile device, you will need to download the Zoom app from their Download Center here: https://zoom.us/download
It is free to create a Zoom account. Though you do not need an account to participate, it is highly encouraged.
For the best chance of your items arriving by Mountain Day, please order by 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday, September 28.

THANK YOU TO OUR 2020 MOUNTAIN DAY SPONSOR
Plainville Brick Company, Inc.
The relationship between Plainville Brick and Berry traces back to the early 1900s, when Martha Berry would drive her Ford to visit owner Newt Legg to discuss the building materials she needed for campus.
Since those early days, the company has continued to support Berry's construction needs and has also funded scholarships for students in need. Many buildings on our campus have bricks supplied by Plainville Brick - one of the most recent projects being the restoration and repair of Krannert Center.
Thank you to Plainville Brick for all you've done for Berry students over the years, and for helping make our 2020 Mountain Day possible!
