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.
