I'm a sophmore, so my Open House at Brooks was 2 years ago, but it feels like it was much more recent. Don't get me wrong, I'm blessed to be living, but time flies faster than you may realize. Going back to my first adjective, this event was certainly fascinating! I was a speaker at Brooks' Open House this year and the new perspective is amazing.
