Brookdale has lots of things ones can do here. For example, Brookdale has what's called a Laugh at Lunch program. This is a series of events in which every so often, an entertainer is invited to perform a live stand up comedy show. During this time, Brookdale students are invited to kick back and enjoy lots of original and funny jokes. I once went to one of those shows, and I really enjoyed myself and laughed a lot that day.Read More
