Student Spotlight – Haleigh Chube ’17

Loves About Brebeuf

There are so many things I love about Brebeuf, but the one that stands out the most is the community. Everyone at Brebeuf is so nice and supportive to one another. The teachers really care about their students and want them to do well and most try to build relationships with their students. Students from all classes are very welcoming and nice to one another and the faculty do a great job of being helpful to everyone. There is always someone that cheers up your day. The sense of community we have at Brebeuf is the thing I will for sure miss the most. 

Favorite Class

My favorite class is AP Macroeconomics because Mr. Tague is such a cool teacher and he teaches every lesson with this energy that I look forward to every class. I also have an interest in business, and Macroeconomics helps me make connections and find out what I like and dislike. All of the courses at Brebeuf are challenging and thought provoking but Macroeconomics is my favorite because of Mr. Tague and my interest in the material. 

Future Plans

I am not yet sure where I am going to college or what I plan to have as my major, but most of the colleges I applied to are in the Midwest and I plan on studying something related to business.  

Teams & Co-Curriculars

Admissions Ambassador
Black Student Union (BSU)
Peer Mentor
Basketball Cheerleading (Freshman & Sophomore year)
I also babysit occasionally 

Random Fact

When I was six, my dad went to Brazil, and as a present he brought me back a piranha. I don’t have him anymore because I unfortunately lost him. 

What has been your favorite Brebeuf experience or most memorable moment so far?

One of my favorite experiences at Brebeuf is freshman year when I used to go to all of Brebeuf’s home football games with my friends. We went even when it got really cold and you had to buy hand warmers and hot chocolate from the concessions so you wouldn’t freeze. I really like football and this was a memory that stays with me when I think about Brebeuf. 

What are you most looking forward to this semester?

Honestly, the thing that I am looking forward to most this semester is figuring out where I will be headed in the fall. It has been a very stressful process applying to all these schools and I am excited to pick from the options of schools I have!
