I chose Brandeis because...

I chose Brandeis because I felt the sense of the tight-knit community and kindness as soon as I stepped foot on campus. I have met the friendliest, most amazing people here who support me and truly care for me. I am so lucky to call Brandeis my home away from home.

My favorite Brandeis class/professor is...

My favorite Brandeis class and professor fall under the same class: Developmental Psychology taught by Dr. Mitchell. I intend on minoring in psychology because I have always been interested in how the mind works. I liked developmental psychology in particular because I love working with children, as I was a camp counselor for three years and am currently a tutor. Dr. Mitchell is an expert in her field and made her lectures very interactive. I had the opportunity to talk with her during her office hours multiple times about psychology and life in general. She is so kind and helpful!

My favorite Brandeis tradition is...

My favorite Brandeis tradition is This is Our House during orientation. It was such a fun way to get to know our class more and dance and laugh for hours!

My most memorable Brandeis experience?

My most memorable Brandeis experience was Fall Flex. There were so many awesome artists like Social House and Cash Cash and I now have favorite songs that I haven't heard before Fall Flex. I got to dress up with my friends and we had the best time!
