Berry alum and LSU Assistant Professor of Kinesiology Elizabeth “Kip” Webster (09C) always tells people about what a special place Berry is.
“Smaller class sizes allowed for a lot of feedback from faculty members which helped in improving [my] writing and critical thinking [skills],” Kip says. These skills proved beneficial to her in graduate school and conducting research. Kip found that the atmosphere at Berry was always one that promoted success and personal improvement. She loved that Berry had “a great learning environment and a good place to grow academically and personally.”
Working for the local Minor League Baseball team, the Rome Braves, has become a rite of passage for many Berry students. This definitely rings true for recent graduate Madison Eiberger (18C) and current student Leigh Hadaway (19c).

Professor Adams has three labyrinth-themed drawings from his krag series included in the juried exhibition, “B18: Wiregrass Biennial,” at The Wiregrass Museum of Art in Dothan, Ala. Work was selected by Elizabet Elliot from the Mobile Museum of Art and Jackie Clay from the Coleman Center for the Arts (York, Ala.). The show runs through Sept. 29, 2018.
Adams focuses on the theme of gardens in his work that he realizes with drawings, paintings, photographs, prints, artist books, and installations. He has shown this work in solo and group exhibitions in this region, across the country, and around the world in such places as Azerbaijan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Syria. He recently completed a large-scale mural at Heritage Park in Rome, Ga., with students and members of the local community. Adams has been on the faculty at Berry since 2000, where he teaches painting/drawing/ printmaking, and the history of art. He also directs Berry’s Moon Gallery. Born to Southern parents in upstate New York, he holds degrees in painting from Temple University and Yale University.
