This week hundreds of Saybrook students, many new, will be coming to San Francisco for the fall Residential Conference – connecting with faculty, attending intensive workshops, and going to classes.
The connections that get made, the community that is formed, and the experiences they have are life changing. Here are a few we’ve been told about:
“Saybrook rattled me to a core,” said psychology alumna Monica Dixon, “and I loved every minute of it. It was the very thing I was seeking —- a different way of operating. I began to question everything, and that has never stopped. I’m just asking bigger questions now.”
“I’m always so impressed by the things that people are doing,” says psychology and social transformation student Gianina Pellegrini. “At other schools people have jobs that are just getting them by, and then I go to Saybrook conferences, and I sit with other students who are on peace committees around the world and have done all this amazing work in different countries, and I’m so impressed, and I’m really motivated: I always think, this is what it’s all about.”
“Saybrook was the first time that I could really pursue anything that I was really passionate about pursuing,” said Human Science student Nick Rorbers. “I look at the Residential Conferences like they’re a vacation.”
