Director of Athletics Todd Brooks has announced that hehas accepted the position of Director of Athletics at Christo-pher Newport University (CNU) in Virginia.Brooks has been with the Berry Athletics department for16 years. He began as the head basketball coach from 1997-2002 before moving to volleyball coach in 2003 and interimwomen’s basketball head coach from 2004-2005 before be-
coming the Director of Athletics, according to the Ofce of 
Public Relations.Vice President of Student Affairs Debbie Heida saidBrooks made a good decision.“He has aspirations for bigger colleges than Berry,” Hei-da said. “This is a good move for him.”Brooks said this move may be good, but it is tough.“I would never have ever thought of being anywhereelse but Berry,” Brooks said. “It’s been one of the best profes-sional decisions I’ve ever made in my life. My family loves it
here, and it was a difcult situation for them to think about
leaving.”
Brooks has been highly inuential during his time at
Berry. He led the expansion of the athletic program from 10teams to 21 teams (with football being the 22nd), which hasled to the number of Berry athletes to grow from about 140to over 330. He supervised Berry’s transition from NAIAmembership to NCAA Division III. Brooks also served onthe committee that assisted in the design of the Cage Cen-ter, as well as helped with the planning of Valhalla Stadium.Finally, he guided the conversion of Richards Gym into a
training facility and the renovation of practice elds at the
Ford Athletic Complex, complete with a new indoor battingfacility.Though he has had a large impact on the institution,Brooks said he cannot take all the credit.“No one individual does all that’s been cited there,”Brooks said. “It’s been the administration, it’s been greatcoaches, it’s been the student athletes who have workedwith us to do it.“Brooks said he also credits his success to the opportuni-ties afforded him.“My impact has been the ability and being fortunate tohave the opportunity to help with all these different proj-ects, from increasing athletic teams, to moving us to another
national association, which has beneted the institution, to
seeing the infrastructure and the facilities increase,” Brookssaid. “It’s not so much of my impact; it’s been my opportu-nity to be a part of that and be given the responsibility tomake sure they stay on track.”

After a “bittersweet decision,” Todd Brooks will leave Berry in June
Senior housing options to be determined
Residence Life will not be invitingrising seniors to live off campus beforeroom selection on April 7 and 8, but theoption may become available once theincoming freshman class number be-comes more definite.Last year, rising seniors could applyto live off campus before room selection.However, Assistant Dean of StudentsLindsey Taylor said there were about 100extra spots on campus this year becausemany students chose not to return in fall2012.Taylor said once the numbers for theincoming freshman class are more defi-nite, Residence Life will look to seniorsif space constraints mean students areneeded to live off campus.“Berry is primarily a residential cam-pus,” Taylor said. “We want and needour seniors to be a part of that.”Off-campus housing will still beavailable to fifth-year seniors, marriedstudents or students whose family livesin a 40-mile radius. Junior Alex La Pierre said she believesResidence Life should continue to allowseniors the option to live off campus.“Academically I feel that Berry hasprepared me because I’ve excelled here, but now I’m more worried about beingable to be an adult,” La Pierre said.La Pierre said there are many moreresponsibilities that come with living off campus and seniors should be allowedto start getting accustomed to thoseresponsibilities.“I understand the value of living oncampus,” La Pierre said. “And it’s niceto be able to wake up, take a quick show-er and run to class. But it’s a hindrancefor seniors to be required to live on cam-pus like little children. Eventually weare going to live away from our jobs andhave to do things like wake up early andpack lunches.”Taylor said housing is always diffi-cult to predict since deposit day for in-coming students is not until May 1 and because students may decide after roomselection not to return to Berry.“Students are so unpredictable,” Tay-lor said. “Some make the decision not toreturn because of personal or financialissues.”Taylor said the goal is always to mini-mize extra space and Residence Life hasconsidered scenarios with a small, me-dium and large incoming class.Taylor said as of Wednesday, 1,129students have paid the $200 housingprepayment. Next year there are 1,253spots on campus guaranteed for return-ing students.Taylor said that while that meansthere are 124 extra spots on campus forreturning students, some may have notpaid the $200 housing deposit becausethey were not able to secure the funds intime or are unsure if they will be return-ing or not.Taylor said male students will havemore options than usual next year. Onefloor of Morton-Lemley will be designat-ed for incoming freshman men and onefloor in Thomas Berry will be designatedfor returning men.Taylor said she believes the changeswill be positive.“I think it will be a good move for allstudents,” Taylor said. “I’m glad we areable to provide the guys more optionsthis time—they need it.”Taylor said plans for the “Village,” agroup of apartment-style housing dormsdiscussed in fall 2011, have been put onhold. Taylor said this decision is partlydue to the addition of the Cottages tostudent housing.“The choice became whether to con-tinue with the Village model or explorethe cottage options,” Taylor said. “Wemade the decision to hit the pause but-ton on the Village.” Julia, Sunshine, Hope, Louise andthe newly added Catherine cottage willfunction as service houses. Each groupof students living in each cottage havetheir own service theme such as “Pay itForward” and “Wellness” and will beaffiliated with a community partner. Po-land will function as a Spanish languagehouse next year.Taylor said there will not be any ma- jor dorm renovations over the summer.

Berry students will color them-selves excited at the Color MeBerry trail run on April 13.Inspired by Atlanta’s ColorRun, Head Program Coordinatorfor A New Year A New You (ANYANY) Madison Chandler askedSenior Class President MarleySimonis and Student Co-Chairfor FirstHand4You (FH4Y) ChadNash to co-sponsor this eventwith ANY ANY.Chandler said she wanted afun event that would promotephysical activity.“I wanted a fun way to getstudents outside and exercising,”Chandler said.Color Me Berry is differentfrom the Berry Half-Marathonand the Mountain Day 5K in thatit is untimed and “more of a funrun/health walk,” according toNash.Color Me Berry will begin atthe start of Viking Trail, wind for
ve kilometers through campustrails and nish at Morgan andDeereld, where an after party
will take place. At every kilome-ter of the trail run, there will bea color station that pelts the run-ners with a different colored pow-der. While the powder washes off with water, Nash said it can also be made permanent by sprayingthe T-shirts with vinegar and thenironing them.Simonis said Color Me Berrywill also be the senior class ser-vice project. All of its proceeds
will benet Action MinistriesRome, a non-prot organizationthat works with the nancially
challenged and homeless in orderto try and break them out of pov-erty by helping them transitioninto more independent lifestyles.Simonis said she, Nash andChandler were inspired by theparticipation of the Atlanta ColorRun and hope Color Me Berrywill do the same.“We hope this event will be
successful and raise a signicant
amount of money to help this
organization that does so much
for the Floyd community,” Simo-nis said.Students interested in vol-unteering should email Mar-ley Simonis at marley.simonis@vikings.berry.edu. All volunteerswill receive a free T-shirt.

Brooks has earned manyawards, several of which weregiven to him while he was at
Berry. According to the Ofce of 
Public Relations he was namedTranSouth Conference easterndivision basketball coach of theyear in 1998-99, the 1995 Geor-gia Athletic Conference men’s basketball coach of the year atPiedmont College and the 1995Whack Hyder Georgia NCAADivision III/NAIA Male Coachof the Year.He has been honored as hisconference’s top Athletics Direc-tor three times, earning Geor-gia Athletic Conference athleticdirector of the year honors in1995-96 and the Southern StatesAthletic Conference AthleticsDirector of the Year in 2004-05and again in 2008-09.Heida said the search forBrooks’ replacement will startnext week, with a job ad beingposted on Monday.Brooks said he has one pieceof advice for the next person “for-tunate enough to take this job.”“Treat Berry College well, because it’s a special place;there’s a lot of good people here,”Brooks said. “If you treat it well,it’ll treat you back well.”Brooks said it was the besttime for him to move if he wasever going to move.“I’m at a point in my life—atan age where I probably have onemore place where I can go andreally establish myself and helpthem grow if I can before I look to retire,” Brooks said. “I neededa new challenge, and I’m lookingforward to those days as well.”Though he is moving on forprofessional reasons, Brooks saidthat did not make the move easy.“You don’t stay somewhere 16years if you don’t enjoy it or youdon’t think that’s where you’regoing to be for the rest of yourlife,” Brooks said. “I could’veretired from Berry College andthat’s not something that’s hardfor me to fathom. But Christo-pher Newport University is adifferent type of institution, andit’s going to challenge me in waysthat I’ve never been challengedhere before because of the natureof the institutions.”
Though Brooks will ofcially
make the move to CNU in June,he wanted to thank everyone
who has inuenced his time at
Berry.“I just want to thank every- body, from the students, to thefaculty and staff to the coaches
specically [that] I work with
every day,” Brooks said. “I’veenjoyed it. I will think of Berrymany, many times; I’m not goingto go away, I’m going to stay intouch with everybody.”Brooks continued by saying
he is making a very difcult deci
-sion by leaving.“I leave here with a heavyheart,” Brooks said. “I’m lookingforward to the challenges, but I just want everyone to know that Iwork with here that I’ve appreci-ated it and I really cared for everyone of them and I’m a better per-son for knowing them.”CNU is a NCAA Division IIIschool with about 5,000 students.

The athletics department has expandedinto and begun renovations on RichardsMemorial Gym in anticipation of football atBerry.The gym, which formerly held studentpublications and the dance studio, was slatedto be torn down to make room for new apart-ment-style student housing.Head Football Coach Tony Kunczewskisaid the department wanted to use RichardsGym rather than tear it down.“We felt like wherever the stadium was,we wanted to utilize Richards Gym,” Kuncze-wski said. “We saw a beautiful brick building;it would be a shame to tear it down.”The Vice President of Student Affairs andDean of Students Debbie Heida, who has beenon the team responsible for the renovation of Richards and the planning of Valhalla, thefootball stadium, said Berry looked at manyoptions for the new football facilities, but ulti-mately decided to combine many of the ideasinto the pre-existing space in Richards Gym.Though Valhalla Stadium is going to belocated behind the Cage Center, Heida does
not think the ve-minute walk from Richards
to the stadium will be a problem.“On game day they are planning a Vikingwalk from the Richards locker room to thestadium,” Heida said. “Make it a good thing,
rather than ‘Oh, there’s a ve-minute walk 
 between the locker rooms and the stadium.’You use it to strengthen something that could be a fun tradition.”Kunczewski said the use of Richards Gymmay help keep the Cage Center more open, asit currently is extremely crowded during peak hours. With the addition of the specializedequipment for the football team, the CageCenter would be extremely crowded.In order to alleviate this crowding issue,
the old pool area of Richards will be lled
in, and a strength and conditioning centeradded. Athletic Director Todd Brooks said
that it will look a lot like the oor of The Cage,
 but be a space for weightlifting as opposed tocardiovascular exercise. The center will beopen to all students, not just the football team.Heida said this will be the biggest part of therenovation.“We need to accommodate football, butnot create things that are just for football,”said Heida.
Kunczewski said the benets of the reno
-vations would extend beyond football.“It’s not just a football facility; it’s going to
 benet the whole campus,” Kunczewski said.
Once the renovations are complete, the
football, lacrosse and tennis ofces will all be
located in Richards Gym, Kunczewski said.
Heida said these ofces will be in the spaces
previously occupied by student publications.
In addition to the ofces upstairs, the
downstairs of Richards Gym will house foot- ball, lacrosse and tennis locker rooms. Formen’s and women’s lacrosse and men and
women’s tennis, this will be the rst time they
have locker rooms of their own.
Brooks also said the wooden oor in the
gymnasium is being redone, as it was dam-aged during a foam dance last year. It will become a multi-use space that outside groups,such as summer camps, in addition to groupsfrom Berry, can use. Other areas being reno-vated are the dance studio, which will get a
new oor, and the Berry Outdoor LeadershipProgram (BOLD) ofces.One of the intramural elds behind Rich
-ard Gym is being repurposed as a football and
lacrosse practice eld, but the other two intra
-
mural elds are remaining as they are.
Renovations have been taking place since
the end of February and will be nished by
mid-June at the latest, Brooks said.Updates and a tour of the facilities can befound at berryvikings.com.
