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
I hope that summer break has been good to you so far. Although it’s rather quiet with so few students on campus for the summer, we are doing quite a bit of work to prepare for the return of students in just a few weeks! Before the school year was over, the new staff and I came up with the theme of Finding Brockert (think Disney…), for next year and we will be working hard over the summer to plan some fun programs and activities around that theme.
Whether you are returning to the building or will be new this fall, there are plenty of ways to get involved and meet other Brockert residents, such as at our weekly Hall Council meetings. Hall Council is a governance group that works to make necessary changes in the hall as well as provide fun programs and social opportunities. At the beginning of the school year we will be holding elections for our open executive board positions, and you could potentially take one of those leadership roles.
Since it is the summer, Brockert Hall is currently closed so you will not be unable to come check out the building for the time being. However, if you are a new student and want to see what a typical room on campus looks like, you may contact Prospective Student Services to see a room in McGregor Hall.
Resident Assistant and Senior Assistant training begins soon and we will begin to prep for your arrival during Labor Day Weekend. We are so excited to have you back and can’t wait to begin a new year. If you are curious about what to bring and what not to bring, check out the Guide To Living here, and check out loft information here if you have not already! Also, do not forget to bring your Personal Data Form (PDF) when you move in. This is a very important form for check in, and you may find it here!
If you want to know more about Brockert Hall, please feel free to head over to our Facebook page. There you will find pictures of various events from last year. The Circle, and more specifically Brockert Hall, is a great place to live!
I hope you enjoy your last of summer, and we look forward to your arrival soon!
Be safe and be well,
Brockert Hall Resident Director
