Loves About Brebeuf

Brebeuf fosters a sense of belonging among its students. There is an air of acceptance that flows through the faculty, staff, and students which gives everyone the capacity to grow. Brebeuf pushes every one of us to be ourselves and to develop an academic identity that coincides with our passions and morals. There truly is no place like Brebeuf, that lives to their mission, exemplifies it in their students, and accepts criticism. I also love the energy of the school. Working with and for others allows for everyone, with their backgrounds and perspectives, to merge and create our own truths as a community. Also our bell sounds funny, and I like it.

  • Dancing when it’s not appropriate

What is your current favorite show or series on TV, Netflix, etc?

Anything true crime related I find absolutely calming. However, I have seen so many shows, as I have an addiction to stories, that picking a favorite is next to impossible. But, to be basic and to give an answer, Black Mirror is very interesting.

Rank the following from 1-5, with 1 being the most awesome, and 5 being the least awesome: High-waisted trousers, bouncy castles, the ugliest carrot in the bag, smudgy phone screens, awkward family photos

If you could add anyone to Mount Rushmore, who would it be and why?

Black Hawk, Susan B. Anthony, Maya Angelou, or Mary McLeod Bethune because representation, acknowledgement, and appreciation are important.
Also a miniature Mount Rushmore (maybe in the parking lot) of the Social Studies department and Mr. Mensel and Ms. McKinney-Torres and Mr. Pettigrew and Ms. Hennessy and Mr. Strader and Mr. G, because they spread so much joy and that deserves recognition.
