How would you describe Burke to a new student?
Burke is a place where you are really able to find a community. There are people with so many different hobbies and interests that you’ll be able to find people you mesh well with. You might not be best friends with every single person, but most people here are very kind and supportive. Teachers are all very approachable and it feels like you can really reach out to them about anything you need.
