My favorite activity outside of class is playing club Ultimate Frisbee as a member of TRON. TRON is not just a team, but a community of unique, like-minded individuals who care about the world around us and love to toss a disc. A majority of my friends have come from this amazing community and it is so much more than just playing frisbee. We have team building and personal development workshops throughout the year, community service opportunities and times to work with the girl's Ultimate team, Banshee, which extends our family beyond TRON.
My favorite place on campus is the Shapiro Science Center because there are many quiet and collaborative study spaces with an abundance of natural light and a beautiful view of campus. In Waltham, its the Cafe on the Common is another place to grab a quick bite to eat and continue to work on group projects or study sessions just a 5-10 minute shuttle ride away. In Boston, Harvard Square is a fantastic location to walk around, eat at some great food joints, and restaurants while being around the most prestigious university in the nation, and its only a 20-30 minute free shuttle ride away!
My most memorable experience was performing and choreographing a Bollywood dance for MELA which is our annual show planned by the South Asian Students Association.
Coming from an ultra-competitive, toxic high school environment, I wanted a college education where I was still challenged but it felt collaborative instead of competitive. I immediately fell in love with the close-knit community and the kind-hearted people that make up this institution. I feel as though Brandeis is "an elite university that doesn't feel elitist".
