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

underneath the overhang of the Lown Center for Judaica Studies (where my Reformation Europe history class met last semester, and my Colonialism, Slavery, and Freedom class met earlier this semester) there is a table and chair set, and it's always really calm there.

I chose Brandeis because...

when I was interviewed, I was asked the usual questions about academics and athletics and extracurricular activities, but I was also asked about my best friend. The community at Brandeis--friends, professors, and mentors--want to see me succeed as a person, not just a data point. I've seen this compassion again and again since arriving on campus, like when a professor stopped his work to help me find a classroom when I got lost before an exam.

My favorite activity outside of class is...

having dinner with my friends after chemistry recitation. We get a chance to just hang out and catch up after a long day of class.

My most memorable Brandeis experience?

My University Writing Seminar (UWS) class from my first semester at Brandeis was a great introduction to university level writing and research, but more importantly it was a way to connect with other new students who were just as lost as I was!! Even after UWS ended, I kept in touch with my friends from that class, and we still talk now, even from opposite coasts of the U.S.

I'm passionate about...
