One of the things that makes Brookstone so special is our alumni community. With more than 3000 alumni worldwide, being part of the Brookstone family is a tie that binds us all together. Some of those alumni wanted to share some wisdom and encouragement to this Class of 2020, who are indeed graduating in historic times. Enjoy their words of wisdom in the video below!
Congratulations to the Class of 2020! We are so proud of all you have accomplished!

We take college counseling very seriously here at Brookstone. It’s not just for the top ten percent or the top twenty-five percent of our students – it’s for everyone.
