Welcome to Brockert Hall
Named after J. C. Brockert and built in 1967, Brockert Hall provides accommodations for 180 men and 85 women and is located in the Circle. A very popular hall among first year students, Brockert Hall is ideally located close to the disk golf course, outdoor basketball courts, softball fields, and Memorial Park. Brockert provides and close community atmosphere and is very active in Homecoming. One of the traditional programs hosted by Brockert Hall each spring is the Circle egg hunt in which the grassy area between the circle halls is covered in plastic eggs and filled with candy and prizes. The study lounges and the main lobby of Brockert were updated in the spring of 2012. The Karen Cushman Multifunction Room is utilized by the Hall Council and outside organizations and provides and nice space for students and staff to utilize for large activities and events.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Brockert Hall it’s getting time to dust off those winter clothes, coats, hats, and mittens because it’s now November. This is the time it starts to feel like a sprint to the end. I hope midterms went well and you’re using your time wisely and studying. If you’re having trouble with any of these things check out the PATH Office for some great tips!
If you are busy studying, it’s always good to take a break so take some time to attend some of the great events going on around campus. The residence halls are hosting some great Friday Night Clubs this month. Wilgus is hosting Just Dance November 6th. Get those blue suede shoes on! Hugunin Hall is hosting Java Jams on November 13th and on the November 20th Dobson will be hosting Battleship! That’s one you don’t want to miss out on!
You can also make time for events and conferences hosted in the Markee Pioneer Student Center. On November 13th make sure to attend the “Excellence in Leadership Conference: Opportunities to be Fearless.” Our goal is redefine and re-conceptualize leadership as the opportunity to impact, influence, and change people’s lives through everyday interactions. We plan to provide breakout sessions on transformative practices and leadership development.
November is also an important time to honor our country’s veterans. November 11th is Veteran’s Day. To learn more about events that will be occurring on the week of November 9th-12th visit the Center for Non-Traditional and Veteran Students’ webpage.
