Berry Merry Christmas Party: An Alumni Paint Party
Thursday, December 17
7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. ET
Join fellow Berry alumni and friends for a virtual paint party to celebrate the holidays! Enjoy some festive, Berry-inspired fun by painting a Christmas scene from campus (featuring the Gate of Opportunity).
Once you register, we'll send you your paint kit with everything you need for your evening of Berry festive fun, including a canvas, paints, paintbrushes, an apron, and an outline of the Berry scene in case you want a little extra help making your picture-perfect painting.
Never Miss a Berry Alumni Event!
Mountain Day got its start in 1914 as a birthday celebration for Martha Berry. Today, it has grown into a three-day homecoming extravaganza that both showcases and strengthens our bonds as a community. Held in early October.
A great time to celebrate our shared experience as Berry alumni and our wonderful memories! Come for your Friday night reunion and stay to enjoy Saturday's Awards Gala Dinner and Sunday's worship services in the beautiful settings of Frost Chapel and the College Chapel. Held mid-to-late May.
Alumni Work Week
Immediately following Alumni Weekend is our annual Work Week, when alumni return to campus to donate their time and energy to various projects. Working side by side with your Berry friends is a very special experience. Alumni and friends of all skill levels are welcome. Come even if you can only stay for a day or two! Held mid-to-late May.
Reunions are a great way to reconnect with your classmates and celebrate your shared memories. Twice a year at Berry, events are held to bring alumni back together. Mountain Day includes special programs for "milestone" reunions, including the 10th, 25th, 40th and 50th reunion classes, as well as a mega-event for all alumni to connect around the decade of their graduation. Alumni Weekend is the dedicated time when all Golden Guard classes meet - those with graduation anniversaries of 50 or more years. Held in May and October.
