Meet our Student Interviewers! Each year the Admissions office selects an impressive group of juniors and seniors to conduct our on-campus interviews. They are some of the most involved student leaders on campus and love sharing their experiences with prospective students. Our student interviewers undergo a rigorous selection and training process to bring you the best of both worlds in your interview: a highly valued admissions representative and an enthusiastic Brandeis student.

We cannot confirm your interviewer in advance or accommodate specific requests. However, we encourage you to browse our interviewers' profiles to read about their exciting accomplishments.

>> I am thrilled that you are looking at Brandeis University for your college education. I cannot wait to hear about your interests and stories. Here's my story! I was compelled to come all the way to Brandeis for the intellectual freedom to find my passion and for a community where people stand up for what they believe in with the utmost kindness and openness.

After taking Pyschology, Neuroscience, International and Global Studies classes, I found my passion in the Theater Arts thanks to Professor Marya Lowry. She taught me to trust my instincts and find what works. I played eight roles in an adaption of Macbeth for the Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Arts and will be playing the role of Christina for the first department show next semester!

I have also had a number of on-campus jobs that have allowed me to deepen my connections with my friends, staff, and alumni while still giving back to Brandeis. If I am not rehearsing, I take advantage of the Brandeis shuttle to go sip some hot chocolate in Harvard Square and peruse interior design books. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out.

>> Hello, I'm glad to see you're interested in Brandeis! I am a rising senior from Queens, New York (Let's Go Mets!) and I am majoring in American Studies with a minor in Politics. Outside of the classroom, I am the president of my improv comedy group, False Advertising, the Chief of Staff on the Student Union, and a member of the club baseball team. On any given day, you can find me refilling my coffee cup across campus, working on a graphic design project, or researching recipes to cook for dinner.

I was originally drawn to Brandeis because of its social justice mission, because I knew I could learn and interact with similarly driven people. My time at Brandeis has been shaped by the people I’ve met in clubs and classrooms, as well as, meaningful and personal relationships I have formed with faculty and staff. Every day, these people bring me joy and push me to be my best self.

I can’t wait to meet you and learn about your journey when you arrive on campus. If you have any questions about the application, student life, or anything else Brandeis related, feel free to reach out.

>> Hello and welcome to Brandeis! I can't wait to get to know the prospective class of 2022 and to share with you all the things I love about this school. One of the small differences of attending a university in New England when you grew up in the South is snow. I was actually admitted as a midyear, which is a group of about 100 freshmen who start their Brandeis journey in the spring semester. The temperature of my move-in day was sub-zero, so needless to say, I have braved the weather and if you are worried about the cold, you can do it!

I have had some incredible experiences as a result of attending Brandeis. I have made my absolute best friends in the entire world, I have studied abroad in the Netherlands, and I have realized what I want to do in life: work in higher education. Since arriving at Brandeis, I have become a Study Abroad Ambassador for the Office of Study Abroad, the president of Brandeis' oldest A Cappella group, Company B, and sit on the Midyear Core Committee that plans the midyear orientation for arriving freshmen. 
I can't wait to meet all of you! Please feel free to email me any questions you might have about student life, the application process, or Brandeis in general.
