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

In Waltham I love Moody Street, but especially Lizzy's Ice Cream! They serve the best home made ice cream, year round. I also love In A Pickle, which is a diner that's also on Moody Street. They have the absolute best french toast in the world. In Boston I love going to the public library, because it's a great place to study and you feel kind of like you're at Hogwarts. My favorite place on campus is anywhere where my friends are; it sounds cheesy but anytime I'm spending time with them is the best!

My favorite Brandeis tradition is...

The 24 hour musical! The 24 hours musical is a show that only starts rehearsing the night before it's performed. People audition all week and then come together the night before to get their parts and start learning the show! It always ends up being absolutely crazy. It's so much fun both to be in and the watch!

My most memorable Brandeis experience?

Dancing in the Adagio Dance company show, which we perform every semester. It was so nice to have been working on something all semester and to see my friends come and support me. I also loved getting to know all the other dancers in my pieces, and it was an incredible opportunity to meet people who I probably never would have!

My favorite activity outside of class is...

Hanging out with my friends at the library! We spend a lot of time in Upper Farber (one of the more social parts of the library) and its a great time for us to all catch up with each other! There's a lot of natural sunlight, so even when we're inside in the winter, it still feels relaxing. We'll be in there almost every day to work and talk and drink coffee.
