With a slogan of Experience ItFirsthand, Berry’s website strivesto maintain accessibility for everystudent.However, a recent study backed by the National ScienceFoundation has determined thatthe Web accessibility of many col
lege websites to those with dis
abilities was “strikingly low.”This is because of advancingtechnologies that make certainfeatures of a website unusablefor some individuals with visualor hearing impairments. Flashapplications and sub menus trig
gered by mouse interaction maylook nice, but according to thepreviously mentioned study, theyare also very difcult to navi
gate for those using impairmentprograms.Freshman Koby Boatright,who has stationary night blind
ness, said he has encounteredsuch problems before when surf 
ing the web.“A lot of sites have scroll downor drop down menus now,” Boa
tright said. “Some sites use toomuch of them and looking for aspecic link becomes difcult.”Such features and applicationsare not found on Berry’s website,however. Leading individuals inBerry’s Electronic Communica
tion Services, who run the col
lege’s website, have taken a strictpolicy against it.“We don’t use Flash in anysituation that would make it dif 
cult to navigate the site with al
ternate means,” Cameron Jordan,director of E-Communication Ser
vices, said.The tools used to navigate theinternet differ with individualswho have different impairments.Those that would have the mostissues with navigating a websitewould be individuals who are blind, said Martha Van Cise, Di
rector of the Academic SupportCenter.

Retention continues upward trend
HaLeY Van Stein
Staff Writer
Berry’s retention rate of students has increased accord-ing to data comparing the classes of 2012 and 2013.The Ofce of Institutional Research generated the stu-dent retention percentage of the past year and came upwith some positive results. In 2008, Berry had an incomingfreshmen class of 448 students, and 74 percent of the stu-dents from the 2007 school year decided to return to Berry.In 2009, Berry had an incoming freshmen class of 569. Thissemester, Berry retained 78 percent of the class of 2013, pro-viding Berry with a 4 percent increase in its retention rate.Andrew Bressette, Dean of Academic Services, attri- butes this achievement to several factors. Bressette saidthe Financial Aid ofce has been a key player in helpingstudents to return to Berry, as many families are strugglingwith tuition costs in today’s economy. He said the ofce hasworked hard to ensure that every student gets the nancialaid they need to continue at Berry.Another dynamic, Bressette said, is the small class sizesand the personal attention that each student receives,allowing them to be more successful, especially in morerigorous classes.Sophomore Christopher Keene experienced some nan-cial strain this year but he said this did not deter him fromnding a way to return and he still intends to nish out hisfour years with Berry.“I love the closeness of community you feel at Berry andall the opportunities available to meet people and makelasting connections. I was very excited to come back,”Keene said.With such encouraging statistics and feedback, Berrylooks as if it could very soon not only boast of having thelargest campus in the world, but one of the most vibrantand thriving student populations as well.According to the Forbes list, Berry College is rankednumber 163 of the 610 schools that made the list.The Forbes list is a ranking of the best colleges in thenation, “ranking only nine percent of the 6,600 accreditedpost-secondary institution in the United States.” The listuses 11 objective factors that fall into ve different catego-ries that range from student satisfaction to postgraduatesuccess. The Forbes list acknowledges that “…appearingon [its] list at all is an indication that a school meets a highstandard.” Berry’s student retention rate rose signicantlyin the past year.

Firsthand Campaign Wins National Gold Medal in CASE Circle of Excellence Competition
From StaFF reportS
Berry College has earned a nationalaward from the Council for Advancementand Support of Education (CASE) for“Experience it Firsthand,” a creative mar-keting campaign developed in collabora-tion with the Blue Sky Agency of Atlanta.The initiative, launched in fall 2008, cap-tured a gold award in the 2010 CASE Circleof Excellence Contest, topping 11 otherentries in the Institution-Wide BrandingPrograms category.“We were extremely pleased to learnof this recognition,” said Jeanne Mathews,assistant vice president for public relationsand marketing. “It afrms our belief thatthe ‘Firsthand’ campaign has been success-ful in bringing the Berry story to life for a21st century audience.“Firsthand” places particular emphasison the hands-on nature of Berry’s nation-ally recognized educational experience. Itencompasses everything from the amaz-ing opportunities for outdoor recreationavailable on the world’s largest collegecampus to the personal interest faculty andstaff members take in the success of everystudent. The “Firsthand” philosophy of education is most evident in Berry’s Work Experience Program, which guaranteesstudents the opportunity to complementtheir classroom education through a paidposition on campus.“The ‘Firsthand’ brand is a consistentand effective part of the language we use torecruit students,” explained Brett Kennedy,director of admissions. “The challenge to‘Experience it Firsthand’ captures in a sim-ple and accessible way those core elementsthat are distinctive about the Berry Collegestudent experience.”The focus of the ongoing campaign wasidentied through intensive research con-ducted by Simpson Scarborough, a teamof nationally recognized marketing strate-gists. Armed with the results of that study,the Blue Sky Agency crafted a new taglinethat captured the essence of a Berry educa-tion in three short words, “Experience itFirsthand.”Once the tagline was approved, BlueSky’s creative team collaborated with Ber-ry’s Public Relations and Marketing Ofceto bring the brand to life through printedpublications, electronic and Web basedcommunications, outdoor advertising andother outlets.Because the work program is sucha powerful differentiator for Berry, the“Firsthand” message has been especiallyeffective when directed toward prospectivestudents. Despite the challenges posed bya struggling economy, Berry welcomed oneof the largest rst-year classes in its historyin 2009.“We have seen the message resonatewith prospective students and parents,”Kennedy stated. “As director of admis-sions, nothing makes me feel better than tosee the ‘Firsthand’ message as the closingwords of an essay explaining why a partic-ular student wishes to attend Berry.”Although she is extremely pleased bythe positive recognition “Firsthand” hasgenerated for the institution, Mathews isquick to share the credit with others onthe Berry campus and beyond who playeda critical role in bringing the brand to life.“This has been a collaborative process sincethe beginning,” Mathews said.“From the initial research – whichfocused on students, faculty, staff andalumni, among other constituents – to thecreative implementation, we have con-stantly sought input from other voicesin the Berry community. An incrediblegroup of diverse and insightful individu-als helped to shape the message, and I ampleased to see Berry reaping the rewards of such collaboration.”Founded in 1974, CASE is a professionalassociation serving educational institutionsand the advancement professionals whowork on their behalf in alumni relations,communications, development, market-ing and allied areas. CASE helps its mem- bers build stronger relationships with theiralumni and donors, raise funds for campusprojects, produce recruitment materials,market their institutions to prospective stu-dents, diversify the profession and fosterpublic support of education. The organiza-tion serves more than 61,500 advancementprofessionals on the staffs of member insti-tutions and has nearly 22,000 professionalmembers.
