Summary: Residence life at Brewster can be summed up in three words: active, exciting, and life-changing. You’ll form lasting bonds with your dorm mates as you live, learn, study, and play together. This is the time in your life where you’ll learn to become independent, be accountable for your actions, get along with others, make important life decisions, form lifelong relationships, and develop skills that will help make your transition to college a smooth one. But you won’t be alone—you’ll be surrounded by a community of caring people, ranging from your academic advisor to your community life parent to supportive peers.
Through group meetings, students create and manage their living environment. Once a week, members of each dorm gather in their lounges to discuss concerns and possible solutions, vote on decisions, and share ideas. You’ll learn how to become a leader of character and integrity, learn to work with others, effectively run meetings, consider other viewpoints, and communicate with a diverse range of people.
