What is your favorite part of your role? I love being able to help make Brandeis the best that it can be.  College can be stressful and Student Activities is the perfect way to help college students remember to have fun and relax every once in awhile.  Plus, I love to plan and run programming and my involvement with Student Activities is the perfect way to be involved and have fun.

How has this involvement impacted your time at Brandeis? My involvement has given me the opportunity to meet all kinds of interesting people.  From students to faculty, I have made some great relationships and I really appreciate Brandeis for the special place that it is.

Do you have a favorite memory of your time with Student Activities or at Brandeis? It is so hard to choose just one because I have so many.  Brandeis has been an amazing experience so far and I cannot wait for the amazing times to come.  Everyone keep an eye out and get excited for Fall Fest 2013!
