Sathvik Sudireddy '15 offered words of comfort and inspiration at Brooks' annual Sixth-Form Induction Dinner
More than 200 people came together to celebrate the new Center for the Arts, and success of our $60 million Campaign for Brooks, with an art, music and fun-filled soiree.
Students, alumni, family and friends came together to volunteer in five different communities on the same day.
A dozen Brooks graduates helped make this year's intensives a success by sharing their expertise, fielding questions and inspiring students in classes on campus and off.
Alumni returned to campus for Homecoming — and to celebrate our new Athletics Hall of Fame inductees with a touching ceremony.
Before they're inducted on September 29, the honorees share with us what Brooks meant to them and their (wise) advice for current students!
