Meet the Senior Interviewers
Meet our Senior Interviewers! Each year the Admissions office selects an impressive group of 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 seniors 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 seniors' profiles to read about their exciting accomplishments.

Congratulations! Finding your way to this bio means that you are investigating some of these incredible people I am so proud to work with as a Senior Interviewer. I enjoy meeting students from all over, with a variety of backgrounds and interests.
At Brandeis, you can find me hanging out on the deck of Lindsey pool or in the varsity weight room in the Gosman athletic facilities along with the rest of my Varsity swim team. When I first came to Brandeis, I was looking to transfer to a university that fulfilled everything I wanted my college experience to be from athletics to academics to community. As a neuroscience major with a premedical focus, the cutting-edge research on campus was a huge draw. I had the opportunity to work first-and in a sleep and memory acquisition lab on campus. Research peaked my inquisitive nature, and led me to double major in Philosophy. As part of my premedical focus, I was also involved with the Pre-Health Society, which encompasses many different avenues within the healthcare field.
Brandeis has really let me explore my passions and narrow down my path to exactly what I want to do with my life. I am confident it can do the same for you! So please, if you feel I can help you in any way, reach out and I will be more than happy to assist you.

Hi everyone! My name is Jessie and I am so excited to meet you all and welcome you to our wonderful university! I was originally drawn to Brandeis because of its location, being so close to Boston while still having the feeling of a small, close-knit campus. After getting to know the school, I was drawn in even further by the involvement of students in such a wide range of activities. I was so excited to become a part of such an actively involved student body as a Midyear of the Class of 2017 (meaning I began at Brandeis during Spring semester Freshman year).
I participate in theatre at Brandeis and am the president of the student-run musical theatre club, Typanium Euphorium. I am also counselor at SSIS (Student Sexuality Information Service). This past fall I studied history abroad at King’s College in London and traveled to so many different places I had only previously dreamed of, which was an incredible and life-changing experience!
If you have any questions about Brandeis, student life, studying abroad, etc., please feel free to reach out to me! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have!

Howdy! As a Senior Interviewer for Brandeis Admissions, I would like to give you a warm welcome to our university. I understand that applying to college can be scary, but fear not. I am here to to learn your stories.
I came to Brandeis from sunny Sand Diego, which was quite the transition and I am so glad I made the journey. The opportunities I have here are nothing short of incredible. I was first drawn to Brandeis to play on the varsity women’s soccer team, which I participated in my first year. Now I play on the men’s club soccer team and spend my free time volunteering, writing editorials for the school newspaper, The Justice, and serving as the Undergraduate Representative for the Philosophy Department. On a typical day I can be found skateboarding around campus with books by the likes of Murakami, Hume, and Tolstoy in tow. I am looking forward to (hopefully) teaching science for the Peace Corps after I graduate.
If you have any questions about the application process, campus life, or what it is like to be a Brandeis student, please reach out. I am happy to help!
