Bruske Hall is situated in the northwest area of campus. A relatively quiet hall, Bruske houses students in either the North or South towers. The hall is set up in quads with rooms surrounding a central community bathroom.
Residents of Bruske have many choices to accommodate their lifestyles. For example, if students prefer to live in a substance-free environment, they can choose to live in the South Tower of Bruske, which is the only substance-free option on campus. Bruske also has the “Blue Room” for when students want to take a break from the books and watch a movie. Bruske is also convenient as it is a few short steps from Hamilton Commons—the primary dining location on campus.
Many student organizations are based in Bruske, such as the women’s music honorary Sigma Alpha Iota, the Alma College Republicans, and QSA-Alma College’s Queer-Straight Alliance.
The building was completed in 1967, making it the newest residence hall on North Campus. Bruske is named after Alma’s second president, August F. Bruske, who served from 1891 to 1912.
