Tour Guide at Brandeis University

She/her/hers

Class of 2022

Hometown: Beijing Shi, China

Major: Psychology

Minor: Business, Teacher Education


I chose Brandeis because...

Rationally speaking, I was looking for a university with smaller class sizes, close to a major city but not in the city, with a relatively liberal environment, with some focus on undergraduate education, with a good reputation and seeing me being in their community. However, frankly speaking, there was no good reason other than, "I felt that I might like being there."

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

Brandeis Library! I can live in the library because there are a variety of spaces and resources for me to do pretty much whatever I want.

My favorite activity outside of class is...

I love dancing. I love dancing on my own (I do contemporary for fun) and with my friends in the Brandeis Ballroom Formation Team (the ballroom dance team/club at Brandeis).

My favorite Brandeis class/professor is...

HWL40 Personal Safety/Self-Defense! The class was actually very useful. I did learn some practical ways to protect myself :)

I'm passionate about...

Musicals Watching Movies and TV Shows Visiting Museums Saving Money Dance

I'm involved with...
