Cultural Events Requirement
The Cultural Events program is designed to expose students to events that faculty and administration believe best represent the literary, philosophical, and performing arts traditions for which Berry as an institution is responsible; to provide students an opportunity to make contact with the issues and personalities of contemporary America as well as cross-cultural public discussion; and to enable students to participate as fully as possible in the intellectual and spiritual tradition of Berry College. Typical credited events include concerts, plays, lectures, panel discussions, debates, convocations, and poetry readings.
The Cultural Events program at Berry requires that undergraduate students attend an average of three credited events per semester (total of 24) in residence. To be credited, events must have an academic purpose: they must be recommended by an academic department or and administrative office of the institution.
