“Oh my gosh, what day is it?” It’s Thursday, August 3 as Scott Carpenter, ’17, found out. “It’s only been two days. I’ve done so much,” he laughed. Life comes at you fast when you’re pursuing your dream.
Two days prior, Carpenter accepted the position of TV sports anchor at WLTZ in Columbus, Georgia. Scott will be seen Monday through Saturday nights on the NBC affiliate at 6, 10 and 11 p.m. doing what he loves most: talking sports.

It’s just past 4 p.m. on a Thursday. Aust the Boss Performance isn’t technically open but owner Austin Lepole, ‘17, is there anyway.

The curtain has closed on “Puttin’ on the ‘Berg,” Alumni Weekend 2017. Nearly 500 alumni and guests – the most in recent years -- returned to campus last weekend to experience “everything old is new again.”
“We had great participation from reunion classes and those who continue to come back year after year after year,” said Ashley Helmstetter, executive director of Alumni Engagement and Major Gifts. “We are always so happy to see them, but it warms my heart to welcome other alumni who are not in reunion classes returning in greater numbers each year.”

Burt Darmour is not crazy. His mother had him tested.
The “Big Bang Theory” reference isn’t lost on those who’ve encountered Burt on his latest adventure – riding his bike cross country to join his ‘Berg classmates for his 60th reunion this weekend.
Burt left his Boulder, Colorado, home on May 21 and rolled onto campus Tuesday morning – a little road-weary, hungry and good humor intact. He’s put more miles on his bike than many people have on their cars!
