Whittall Open House
Every year, each house at Brentwood gets its chance to open their doors to the entire student body and showcase what their residence is all about. All students are allowed to come visit and enjoy the festivities each individual open house has to offer. Following Rogers, this year’s second open house was hosted by Whittall last Saturday, October 27th.
Whittall House has an extensive history at Brentwood, including an infamous fire in 1978, and is known for being a very tight-knit community. Led by Houseparent Mr Blake Gage and Assistant Houseparent Mr Oliver Amiel, Whittall has continued to be a dominant interhouse force, as well as a great group of guys year after year. “It’s become a close family,” says Bo P, Whittall ‘20. “We have a brotherhood: we look out for each other, because we love each other.”
This year our event was Halloween themed and students came dressed in costumes to enjoy the evening. Following the ritual check in, they advanced into the skeleton and spider littered hallways, and though the dark, ominous house. There was a photobooth for pictures, as well as the classic open house dance floor in the common room downstairs. And in the spirit of Halloween, candy was given out regularly. It was a pretty good night, and we hope everyone will be back next year.
