Dean Godin helps give life to the Brooks House community. He works very closely with congress members to think of and organize meaningful house events, he funds Brooks House lunches for upper class students, and his passion for film makes him always up for a good discussion about a recent movie you have seen. Dean Godin’s finest attribute, however, is how personable he is. He develops close relationships with nearly all the freshman, hall advisors, and former Brooks House residents. He is easily accessible, and is always willing to offer advice, or just be there for students to talk to.
