Ice, Ice, Berry

Berry students were recently treated to a delightful surprise of snow fall. A blanket of white draped over the college’s rolling hills and majestic buildings, adding a unique splendor to the already picturesque campus.

While some parts of the region were gridlocked by the snowfall, Berry students enjoyed the perks of weather that is rare to the South. Classes were canceled and Berry’s 27,000 acres morphed into a sprawling powdered playground. Students dropped their pens and pencils and picked up snowballs and makeshift sleds for a day of icy fun.

Josh Wilkinson, a senior exercise science major from Seattle, Wash., was elated to experience the second snow day of his Berry career.

“I basically spent all day playing in the snow with my friends. We hiked up to the House o’ Dreams on Mountain Campus, and it was one of the coolest experiences I’ve had at Berry. The time I spent with everyone made me realize how much I am going to miss this place when I graduate in May,” Josh said.

Classes resumed and normalcy returned to the campus after the snow melted. Berry’s last snow day occurred in January 2011.
