Welcome to the Edinboro Family

In the spirit of togetherness and friendly competition, PennWest Edinboro welcomes you to BoroBrood, a unique campus experience that builds togetherness and school spirit through friendly competitions, special programs and events. In Scottish, “brood” means "kin" or "family," and that's exactly what you’ll find at Edinboro. We are a caring community of students, faculty, staff and alumni who are thrilled to welcome new students into the Fighting Scot family each semester.

Each Edinboro residence hall is the home of a Scottish-themed family, such as the MacDonald House, and is identified by a color and special coat of arms. All students residing in that building become members of that brood and will enjoy opportunities to compete in a variety of challenges throughout each semester, including:

  • Academic GPA competition
  • eSports gaming competitions
  • Regatta on Mallory Lake
  • “Pack the Pogue” on Friday nights
  • And more

Broods will win prizes including a prestigious trophy to be presented each semester to the brood with the highest cumulative GPA.

Beyond the friendly competitions, the BoroBrood program brings important University support services into each residence hall, providing a high level of personal attention to ensure student success. Services include:

  • Academic success coordinator
  • Professors and athletic coaches
  • Residential advisors
  • Alumni mentors
  • And more

When you sign up to live on campus, you will automatically become part of the brood associated with your residence hall. When you move into your building, you’ll be given a t-shirt designed with your coat of arms and color of your brood. Wear it proudly and let the games begin!


Of course! The purpose of BoroBrood is for all Fighting Scots to join together in the spirit of friendly competition, no matter where you live. We are all one big brood! If you don’t plan to reside on campus, information will be sent to you prior to each semester about how you can get involved.
