Stadium will not be built by fall
PAUL WATSON News Editor Construction on the new football stadium will be postponed until sufficient funds are raised, Berry board of trustees decided last weekend during their February meeting. According to an email from College President Stephen R. Briggs, “Construction on the Valhalla stadium project— which includes extensive site work, a berm seating area, a concrete permanent structure, a turf field and track—was approved in principle but will commence after the eaglets have safely vacated their nest and after funding is raised for the site work and turf field. Funds to date have been raised primarily in support of the concrete structure and the track.” Vice President of Student Affairs Debbie Heida said that there are two major options for where the football team can play temporarily. One option is Barron Stadium near downtown Rome. The other is the Darlington School athletic field. Heida said all the games could not be played at Barron Stadium because there

Firsthand4You, Scholarship Night celebrated
CAROLINE CLAFFEY Deputy News Editor FirstHand4You (FH4Y) celebrated Berry’s beginnings on Friday night with Scholarship Night, an event when scholarship recipients are invited to thank donors for their contributions. FH4Y is a student-run philanthropic organization that encourages students to recognize and reciprocate generosity. Representative of the Class of 2013 and Student Co-Chair of FH4Y, senior Chad Nash said FH4Y’s main goal is to promote awareness in the student body about gifts from alumni and friends of Berry and the impact those gifts have on tuition. “We hope that once students are aware of how much alumni and friends are making their tuition cheaper, they would be instilled with a sense of gratitude and that would inspire them to give back to the college,” Nash said. FH4Y asks students to give an annual donation that reflects their class year—for example, students graduating in 2013 would give $20.13 per year—that is divided into small deductions taken

The renovation of Richards Gym, however, has been approved to proceed as planned. The renovation will include locker rooms, a strength and fitness center and offices for football and lacrosse.

Provost Kathy Richardson said that the renovation should begin very soon and should be completed by fall 2013.

Nash said that if enough students were to sign up for this collection process their sophomore year, their class could give Berry a meaningful gift. “If 400 students were to do it, by the time they graduate their senior year, their class would have enough money to endow a scholarship to give as their senior gift,” Nash said. “For the cost of

a Coke every two weeks, you’re helping someone come to college and get a Berry education.” Nash said Scholarship Night is an occasion for students with named scholarships to have dinner with the donor for whom their scholarship is named. “It’s a good way to bridge the gap between the students and the people who are giving the scholarships,” Nash said. Scholarship Night began with the Candleholding Event, a tradition of thanks started by Martha Berry for which student volunteers and scholarship recipients line Berry’s entrance road holding lit candles in order to welcome the donors to campus.
