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.

Summary: Life at Brewster is not just about living in a safe, incredibly beautiful campus by a lake … in a town so friendly that the whole world comes to visit.
At the heart of Brewster’s community life is the firm belief that leaders aren’t necessarily born, they are made. And that leadership skills, visionary thinking, and character, are all qualities you develop by getting involved in a learning community founded on such principles as: respect, being helpful, contributing, and serving yourself and others with your best in all you do.
Spend a few hours touring our campus. You’ll notice that regardless of whether it is within the classroom or outside—through student activities, athletics, a vibrant dorm life, community service, or decisive group meetings—these are the fundamental values that guide every aspect of life at Brewster.
You won't find a shortage of activities in which to participate at Brewster. Whatever your interests, you're sure to find a group that shares your interest and enthusiasm. Whether you're interested in the environment, a paintball enthusiast, a knitter, a dancer, or enjoy interacting with children (Brewster Big Friends), there is something for everyone. You may prefer to spend time helping others with a community service project, participating in a school leadership position, or working on a local or international project with the Interact Club. Perhaps you just want to get off campus for a day of shopping in Boston, winter skiing, or seeing a movie ... the choices are endless.

Summary: Your years at Brewster set the pace for what is to follow — college. As recent research surveys of our graduates reveal, a Brewster education is an ideal preparation to successfully negotiate the academic, emotional, physical, psychological, and social challenges of college life.
And, preparing students for college may be best expressed by the extent to which they return after their first year. A recent survey shows that Brewster graduates recorded approximately 95 percent retention from their freshman to sophomore year. The national average is about 70 percent.

Brewster was the best experience of my life. There is nothing like it. My brother is there now and he would agree. We are different people and students but we both found our place in the BA community.
