Students take the lead, working with HA's and the Brooks House Congress to plan events. This past year, these included a tie-dye event, pumpkin painting, door decorating contests, Sunday Night Sundaes, study parties, a community-outreach tradition called Brooks Buddies, a Brooks Mentors program, and more. Students are encouraged to suggest and plan activities, working with the Dean, the Don, their HA's (hall events), and the Brooks House Congress (house-wide).
Brooks House events can be spontaneous or planned in advance. They can be indoors in one of our common spaces - the Great Room, the cozy fireplace room, the seminar room - or outside on our beautiful patio and lawn. They can be co-curricular, bringing classroom discussions and current events into the House. Or they can be casual get-togethers among friends. Regular events include weekly Brooks Breakfasts and Sunday Night Sundaes.
