I have to be honest I have two favorite Professors on campus. One is Professor Kosinski-Collins and the other is Professor Katz. I took professor Katz's behavioral neuroscience class second semester fo my first year and through that class, I found that neuroscience was not my thing. Even though I am not pursuing neuroscience Professor Katz has been one of my mentors and I frequently meet with him to get advice. Professor Kosinski-Collins was my second-semester bio lab professor and is a person that I have turned to talk about the next steps in studying biology at Brandeis and just about things I need to navigate in my life.
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.
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.
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.
