Alumna Spotlight

Sasha, Class of 2014

Post-bac student

"I never thought that I would be a 'good' chemistry student, but thanks to the unrelenting support of the faculty at Brandeis, I have exceeded my academic goals. Dr. Claudia Novack's extra sessions exclusively for post-bac students were instrumental to my success, and while chemistry lab was a challenge, Dr. Dolnik was available for me whenever I needed help or clarification.

The labs at Brandeis are beautiful and modern.  I didn't feel like an undergraduate when in the lab; I felt like a scientist."
