    What makes Brandon Hall so unique is the people there. The people are all so welcoming and kind. Which was something I wasn't used to when I first got there? The teachers are very involved. . .

    1) The campus is on a nature preserve and so beautiful... but also close to Atlanta and all the boarding events that students could want to do near a big city. All athletic facilities are. . .

    The fact that Brandon hall made your weekends something to look forward to is amazing. Whether it being a bonfire out of simple or going to six flags, the dorm staff always made it so. . .
