Best Advice for 1st Years: Stay tuned from the first day!! I know everything is going to be new for all of you, but keep in mind the Leadership Fellow's advice and ask them whatever you need to know. Besides the staff and faculty at Brandeis IBS, we are the people to communicate with in case you need something. Enjoy the good weather at the start of the year: winter is so long and you will have enough time to study during the year. Make new friends and new connections and start looking for job really early in the semester.
