It has been said that Berea consists of over 1600 great stories—stories of challenge, accomplishment, and triumph. That is certainly true, but what is more: those stories of current Berea students share space in our book with the stories of all other Bereans, who together constitute our unique and wonderful community. This Opening Convocation is a celebration of all those stories and a consideration of how they connect with and reinforce one another. Special music will be performed by Berea student singers.
