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.”
