Scarlet & Gray Week

Best of the Berry | May 1 – 5, 2023

This Scarlet & Gray Giving Week is about class pride, teamwork, and good, old-fashioned competition. This week will decide which graduating class is the Best of the Berry, decided by support for the present and future of our alma mater. So, while only one class can prevail, everybody wins!

All alumni gifts will support your class total, regardless of whether they are designated for the Newberry Fund or an area of choice. Follow along on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, make a gift, and spread the love on social media with the hashtags #NewberryCollege or #BestoftheBerry!

Are you the Best of the Berry?
