Make Your Brescia Experience Extraordinary
Your Brescia experience is filled with a culmination of engagement and involvement that connects your classroom learning to real-world experiences.
Your transcript only tells half the story.
We know that engaged students are happier, more balanced, and build strong social connections. We also know that employers are looking to hire new graduates who are well-rounded, and have a variety of learning experiences --inside and outside the classroom.
In addition to supporting your academic success, your co-curricular experiences can help you thrive personally and professionally, by strengthening your skills and competencies.
