Berry alum promotes Georgia Tech’s French Campus
With a passion for writing and a love of the French language, 2018 graduate Allie Crain has found the perfect job – promoting Georgia Tech’s international campus in Metz, France.
It was a natural progression for Allie, who has a dual degree in French and Public Relations and has taken advantage of every opportunity at Berry. In addition to working as a news producer for the student-run multimedia website Viking Fusion, she was a research assistant for Communication Chairman Dr. Brian Carroll. Dr. Carroll was not just her boss, but a mentor. “He helped me through every step of the process and I could not be more grateful,” she recalls.
Allie’s hard work and determination led to her earning the Rollins Work Award, an achievement given to students who go above and beyond in their service to Berry and the community. She was also involved in the honors society Phi Kappa Phi as well as the innovative Berry Center for Integrity in Leadership program. Allie is a prime example of the innovative ways Berry students can combine various paths into a cohesive educational experience that leads to an exceptional life beyond college.
