My most memorable Brandeis experience?

Deiswood, which was one of the many exciting orientation events during my first week. It was basically a red-carpet themed social gathering that was organized by the orientation leaders, where there were food trucks, mocktails, karaoke, a dance floor, and other fun activities all going on in the Fellows Garden. That night I met some of my best friends at Brandeis!

My favorite activity outside of class is...

Climbing practice. I had never thought I would join the climbing team in college and have basically no experience in rock climbing before, but now it's what I look forward to the most every week! Clubs here are so welcoming of new members of any level.

My favorite Brandeis class/professor is...

Economics of Race and Gender with Elizabeth Brainerd. It's the first economics course I am taking at Brandeis, and it is making me consider changing my plan to majoring in economics instead. The content is so fascinating, and it gives me a whole new perspective to discover the depth of seemingly basic lifestyle things, such as studying the marriage market, labor market discriminaiton, wage gaps, and fertility, all in the context of race and gender.

I chose Brandeis because...

As cliche as it sounds, Brandeisians’ reputation of being super kind and inclusive really does hold true. I love that I can be surrounded by high-achieving students and have intellectually-stimulating conversations without the competitive environment.
