We were recently described as ‘a place of energy and laughter, of single-minded determination among students to do the best they can’. We like this description which we feel captures both the vibrancy of the environment at d'Overbroeck's and the high level of achievement within it. Another student said “ Best college ever, ever, ever. You wake up in the morning and want to go to school!”
