Some tips from Mr. Quilty, Berkshire's Dean of Students
Dean Quilty, what's the most important thing for students to know before they arrive on campus?
Every school year is a new start and provides you an opportunity to re-define yourself or step out of your comfort zone. So, take a chance, open your mind, and see what's possible!
What do you think is the hardest part for kids to remember?
It's hard to remember that, while you're here, Berkshire is your home. Instead of thinking of this as your during the week home, really invest in the community and stick around every weekend. You'll really like what we have to offer!
What would you say is the thing that they should know now?
Students should know the school motto, because they will hear it from me a lot!
Well, you heard it here - learn the school motto. Here it is: Pro Vita Non Pro Schola Discimus, "Learning- not just for school but for life."
Alright, Dean Quilty, for our last question - what should kids bring that they might not expect to need?
That one's easy: Get yourself a nice head lamp that can dim. Works great in your room at night reading or outside when you're running across campus during Trivia Night.
