My favorite Brandeis class/professor is...

I love my Arabic classes with Professor El-Tobgui!

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

I love the river path along our stretch of the Charles. It's so peaceful in the mornings, and lovely for jogs in the fall and spring!

My favorite activity outside of class is...

Rugby all the way. Rugby has become a family for me over the years, and I always look forward to the opportunity to tackle some people at the end of a long day. Whether it's practice, team dinner, or a casual game in the snow, I can't think of a better way to spend time than with my favorite ruggers.

I chose Brandeis because...

Brandeis embodied for me all the values that I was raised on. Learning for the sake of knowledge itself, giving back to the world and community I come from, and always maintaining a degree of skepticism about everything I learn. I knew that by going to Brandeis I would graduate a better person, with a defined value system and an ability to think critically about the world and my views of it.

I'm passionate about...

Kickboxing Running Arabic Foreign Languages Martial Arts

I'm involved with...
