I chose Brandeis because...

I wanted to go to a University where I wasn't just a number to professors. I didn't want to be student 307 in their class I wanted to be Emma. Being at Brandeis has completely proven the point that it is very easy to get in contact with professors and to reach out to them to set up a meeting about their class or just to talk.

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

My favorite place in Waltham has to be Chillbox. My friends and I love going to Chillbox to get frozen yogurt or a crepe after a long week or just to hang out on the weekend. On-campus I like to go to the Stein on Thursdays with all of my friends. It's our weekly dinner spot where we all get together and talk about the week.

My favorite activity outside of class is...

Being a sports writer at The Justice, which is one of our two school newspapers. I enjoy writing for the newspaper but also being on an amazing team filled with really nice and motivated people.

My favorite Brandeis tradition is...

Candle lighting ceremony at the Light of Reason during orientation. This is a tradition where students get candlelight and all the first-year students light them at the same time and make a wish for their journey at Brandeis. This was a very special moment for me.
