My most memorable Brandeis experience?

The first time I went to Light the Night, an orientation event! During my first year, the event was online so the first time I experienced it in person was an orientation leader. At this event, each person writes on a candle a word or phrase they want to encompass their Brandeis experience. Then you light up your candle with the rest of your class as the Light of Reason art installation lights up with you. When I saw this in person and got to light my own candle for the first time, I got to see the Brandeis community come together in person for the first time as a physical representation of the community I had felt online for over a year! This is event is my favorite Brandeis experience and one I love to go back and visit during every orientation!

My favorite place on campus, in Waltham or in Boston is...

Fenway Park! I love going to Red Sox games or even just going to the Fenway area to go to Restaurants like Wahlburgers or The Landsdowne!

My favorite Brandeis tradition is...

My favorite Brandeis tradition is the 24 hour musical because the whole Brandeis community comes together whether it be as part of the cast, crew, or audience to support one another! Though it is definitely chaotic, it is always a good time where fun memories are created!

My favorite Brandeis class/professor is...

Sociology of Education with Professor Derron Wallace. The class pushed me to grow through discomfort and Professor Wallace really cared about getting to know each and everyone of us in the class. This class allowed me to not only think about problems in education but the intersection of societal problem and our own role in them, and how to create change beyond ourselves.
