Student Spotlight – Hunter Lang ’17
Loves About Brebeuf
The thing I love the most about Brebeuf is the freedom that is given and the responsibility that comes along with that. Although Brebeuf courses are for the most part challenging and require a lot of work, the long breaks have provided me the opportunity to do my homework, meet with teachers, and socialize with friends. As a result, I feel this has prepared me very well for college in terms of time management and setting priorities by teaching me how to properly balance my school work and my social life.
AP European History with Mr. Spotts and Health with Mr. Haynes were my two favorite classes at Brebeuf. Despite AP Euro being a rigorous course, Mr. Spotts made every class a blast through the relationships he creates with students and his desire to watch his students succeed. In addition, I found health class very intriguing, and it has inspired me to pursue a career in a health-related field.
Next year I will be attending Indiana University Bloomington to study pre-med and nutrition in the College of Arts and Sciences.

What has been your favorite Brebeuf experience or most memorable moment so far?
My favorite Brebeuf experience so far has been going on Kairos retreat twice, both as a retreatant and leader. This retreat has truly transformed my Brebeuf experience by allowing me to see life through others’ perspective, as well as creating lasting friendships. Kairos, along with all the other retreats offered, are truly unique and make the Brebeuf experience unlike that of any other high school.
This is the first issue of InDepth that will go out to the Class of 2021 families. What advice would you give our soon-to-be Braves?
The number one piece of advice I can give any Brave is to take advantage of all the amazing opportunities and resources Brebeuf has to offer, both in terms of academics and extracurriculars. All teachers at Brebeuf are truly there for you, and it is crucial to go meet with them on your breaks and PRTs to receive help. In addition, participate in the various extracurricular activities Brebeuf offers, such as varsity sports, clubs, intramural basketball, retreats, service trips, performing arts, and many more. Expanding your horizons and going out of your comfort zone will make your Brebeuf experience the best it could possibly be.
