I chose Brandeis because...

Brandeis is a community of intensely passionate and academic people, but it's also a community of supportive and kind people. Students here will take rigorous classes and pursue their interests, but there's no cut-throat competition against each other. I can confidently say that everyone here (students, faculty, and staff) has my back, and we all help each other succeed.

My favorite Brandeis tradition is...

Kindness Day! During Kindness Day, there are kindness-themed events all over campus like open mics and bingo nights, and you can make gifts and crafts for your friends or professors (My best friend and I painted rocks for each other our first year and still have them!). The highlight of Kindness Day is kindness cards, which are nice notes you can write for a friend, a professor, or a staff member that gets delivered to their mailbox!

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

Nipper Maher Park just off campus! I live off campus, so this is a fun place to hang out with friends or just sit and enjoy being outside that's only a block away from my apartment. When the weather is nice, my favorite place to study or read is on the baseball fields in the sun.

My favorite activity outside of class is...

Co-conducting Top Score Orchestra. We play music from movies, TV shows, video games, and musicals, and I've conducted music from Hercules, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Pokemon!
