Unique Community Experiences

  • The McBrotherhood
    The McBryde community is known for being a tight-knit group of gentlemen. Set-up as a traditional style residence hall, the “McBros” grow together as a family and participate in activities ranging from intramurals, community service, and bonding initiatives within their hall.
  • Man-Chats
    Each month, McBryde hosts a dialogue series known as “Man-Chats.” This initiative brings together men of all walks of life to discuss the issues that are facing college-aged men. Former topics include gender, racism in international soccer, and what it means to be a man.
  • “Macho Man” Health and Wellness Series
    Several times throughout the semester, the “McBros” gather together to learn about and experience different topics about living a healthy life as a college-aged man—mind, body, and spirit. Topics range from nutrition and body image to stress relief and mental health.
