Members of Brooks College House, known as Brooksians, begin their residential life at F&M during first-year orientation with the fiery Phoenix Ceremony. Each new resident writes down something that they would like to leave behind, a part of their past, as they move on to college and enter into the Brooks House community. These declarations are placed into the ceremonial Phoenix Sculpture in a colorful bonfire on Hartman Green. Like the legend of the Phoenix, our House emblem, this ceremony symbolizes rebirth and renewal. Students also write down something they would like to achieve, a part of themselves they would like to develop. These notes are collected and returned as students graduate, encouraging reflection on personal and academic growth.
