Saturday, Dec. 10 , in the Ste-phen J. Cage Athletics and Recre-ation Center, approximately 121Berry students will graduate andmove on to the next stage of theirlives.Noreen Salmon, adminis-
trative assistant to the Provost,is in charge of the graduation
Tickets to attend the gradua
-tion ceremony are not required.Tickets are only required for grad-uation in the spring.“The more the merrier,” Salm-on said.
The commencement ceremony
will be at 2:30 p.m. in the Cage,with Karen Holley Horrell, theChair of the Board of Trustees, asthe graduation speaker. A recep-tion for graduation attendees will be held immediately afterwards.Brittany Shadburne, a senior re-ligion and philosophy major, saidshe is excited to be graduating.“I’m just happy to be donewith school for a semester and ahalf,” Shadburne said.Gabrielle Bell, a biology ma- jor, is even happier, comparinggraduating in two weeks to be-ing born, and is already countingdown the days till graduation.“It’s the most awesome feelingI could ever describe in my life,”Bell said.After graduating, Bell said she
wants to work for the Georgia Bu
reau of Investigation, and hopes
that the bureau will pay for medi-cal school. She plans to become aforensics pathologist, perform au-topsies and catalogue diseases.“It’s my ultimate goal in life,”Bell said.Shadburne, however, will con-tinue to be involved with Berry af-ter she switches her cap’s tassel.Shadburne said she will beworking with Berry College
in the Department of Human
Resources.Shaburne will later entergraduate school at Berry seeking
a Masters of Arts and Teaching,
and will be focusing on middlegrades’ math and science.Salmon said slight changes inthe graduating class and ceremo-ny, such as more students beingadded to the graduating list and
others remaining for another se
-mester, are expected.“It’ll be tweaked a bit betweennow and then,” said Salmon.
The graduation activities start
at 10:30 in the morning with the baccalaureate service in CollegeChapel. The address will be de-livered by Rev. Jonathan Hug-gins, Berry’s interim chaplain.A graduation buffet will be heldafterwards from 11:30 to 1 p.m. inKrannert.Despite rumors that the fall
graduation’s time and date had
changed, Salmon said that onlythe spring graduation’s had.“All spring graduation cer-emonies will be at 10 a.m., unless
they change it again, of course,”
Salmon said.
Students and professorsvalue course evaluations
Matt PuLFord
Guest Writer
With Berry in the midst of course evaluations,individuals on both sides of the student-faculty lineconsider these evaluations worthwhile.
Toward the end of each semester students receive
notications on their student VikingWeb accounts re-minding them to complete their course evaluations.These evaluations range from open-ended questionsconcerning the course in general to questions evalu-ating the professor. All of this is done anonymously. Jim Watkins, associate professor of english, rheto-ric and writing, said he feels that these evaluationsare effective.“Students get to give their opinion with knowl-
edge that their anonymity is protected,” Watkins
said.Mirna Ogrizovic-Ciric, orchestra director and
visiting professor, said that as a teacher she takes
these evaluations to heart for the betterment of herclasses.“I always read them and consider everything andtry to change if there is a trend,” Ogrizovic-Ciricsaid. “Sometimes it’s not possible, but I try to changethings that are repeated.”Apart from helping the professors adjust anypossible course changes, these evaluations go up
through the hierarchy to the department chair and
dean. Annual evaluations are also compared withthose from the previous year, Watkins said. Then
they are compared to the department average, the
school average and the college average.Both Watkins and Ogrizovic-Ciric expressed theirmutual eagerness for students to complete theircourse evaluations. Watkins said professors liketo see a high rate of response. Because of this someprofessors hound their students to complete theirevaluations.Like Watkins and Orgizovic-Ciric, students hadpositive input concerning the course evaluationprocess. Junior Clint Parsons, a biology major, has sevenevaluations to complete this fall, and said that hehas always completed his evaluations. He said, if thefaculty actually take time to read them then they areeffective in developing better classes at Berry.“It gives me a chance to vent without it beingawkward or let them know what really helped me,”Parsons said.
